Is the 2.2 CVS branch still accessible? I had a measure of success with
2.2.13 and 2.3.21 cross-compiled circa December. I'd have to test them
again to tell you which, but with at least one of them, I can boot into a
working system. The tricky bit is by the time it's finished booting, the
serial console output is lost; at this point I'd like to be able to telnet
in, but my setup.rpm (from hardhat) lacks the necessary securettys.
I can send you something if you need it.
