This is good news!  We want to connect an IDE flash drive to the local bus
of an rm9224.  Of course we will have to make an IDE host adapter with an
FPGA.  Right now, I'm a bit clueless as to how to get the linux kernel to
support this.  Could someone please point me in the right direction?  What
kernel source files should I be looking at?  Is there any documentation?
Many thanks!
