FWIW, there was some mention of this on lkml.
Looks like it may have quickly been put in the "Too Hard" basket. The
bulk of the 15Mb patch, however, is not a port per se, but addition of
kdbg and XFS, so there won't be anywhere near that much real work.
Here's an important one, however, which I alluded to yesterday:
+GCCFLAGS += -m4710a0kern
I haven't tried building and running a kernel built without the gcc
workarounds, so I don't know whether they are only required for early
silicon. My guess would be not. Is there anyone from Broadcom here who
knows or can find out?
