Ho, hum.  I was kinda hoping to put that off ... too lazy, too many other things to do !!.
But I guess I just need to buckle down and get it sorted.

In fact the u-boot stuff *is* already upstream ... the u-boot patch is a bit of a hang over.  Oops.

the linux stuff was a bit of a sticking point ... Atmel's AVR32 patches are all based on 2.6.25.10.
But I'm guessing that if I submit my new RTC support code won't it only be added to the latest kernels ?

How can I submit my RTC code *and* still use 2.6.25.10 ?

I know I could use Haavard's latest linux (2.6.27.??), but then that's moving further away from
the buildroot "all-in-one" principal !?!

Any ideas ?

Okay ... will do.

Thanks for the feedback.
