I'll try and take a look. Having finally taken delivery of a new development 
system, I should hopefully be able to get back to looking at various Linux 
kernel issues again. (There's also the story of why things like Git didn't 
work for me for quite some time, along with some other interesting recent 
discoveries, but that is perhaps a discussion for another time.)

My recent work with the CI20 has given me a bit more tolerance for exploring 
low-level software again, and it might make it feasible to investigate the 
challenges of the Minibook. Certainly, I want to keep making progress on 
supporting these devices and helping them have some kind of meaningful role, 
even if they are incapable of providing the full experience of supposedly 
"modern" GNU/Linux distributions.
