Yeah, sorry, I should have been more clear. =) It'll be a lot easier
to port the bits that I need because they've got some good
documentation going. Information on the 101's toolchain is more
scattered and not incredibly well documented, so it's looking painful
so far. The GCC bits for the 101 will likely be easy, but flashing
looks pretty non-standard from what I've found.

I might take you up on that offer- it would certainly make testing a lot easier.
