that will be utilized in the CML2 build system for the 2.5.x
and 2.6.x series kernels. He sent me another list of items and
I decided to ask those of you on the list to provide the

The uart on the Alchemy Au1000 is almost a 16550 but not quite. I've
added support for that uart in the non-standard uart section in
drivers/char/Config.in. This option is needed if you want uart support

An older version of the IT8172 system controller what has slightly

this anymore so I plan on dumping this asap.
On the IT8172 system controller, Smart Card Reader 0 and 1.
Let me know if you need additional information.
