The lazy Bernie would opt for merging the NOPL emulation patch into our
custom OLPC kernel so we can do a quick test with Fedora 13.

If it works, there will probably be a few more issues to fix, such as
the Geode driver. I'm afraid we lack resources to debug both Sugar and
Fedora in time for the August release.

If someone wants to take ownership of the platform part, I'd be happy to
try. The criteria for accepting the distro upgrade is the usual one: no
known regressions relative to Fedora 11 + Sugar 0.88. (all bundled
activities must work as well as before).
