it's not in the Makefile, because the MIPS part of the driver hasn't been
merged. And I haven't even powered up the M700 for over a year... 

So I'd say forget the M700 part, the last time I looked, there was more code,
which looks non working for it.


Crap can work. Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessary a
good idea.                                 [ Alexander Viro on linux-kernel ]
