I had it netbooting and getting to multiuser mode with decent device
support, though no RTC iirc...  The problem I had was that I discovered
an ethernet frame (that may be specific to my network) that would never
be transmitted...  I talked to TS and tried to file a support request
w/ Cirrus Logic on the issue, but got no where trying to figure out why
a DNS packet wouldn't transmit... I could boot multiuser over nfs after
aborting sendmail's DNS query...

Though it hasn't been integrated w/ the recent work that's happened on
arm in the last couple years...
