I just had a little time to try 852 on the XO-1 and there were some bugs 
I have found. I am not sure whether anybody will fix them ever but here 
they are nevertheless:
1. When the screen is rotated 180 degrees the PgUp and PgDn game keys 
are not rotated.
2. The control panel does not remember the unchecked state of the Radio 
On checkbox.
3. There is something terribly wrong with suspend (most likely the EC 
code). Sometimes it just switches off the closed laptop. After I boot it 
there is plenty of power in the battery so it is not a low power 
situation. It happens regularly that after the XO-1 wakes up to reduce 
the back light brightness it cannot go to sleep again. I think that it 
is the EC code because the blinking power led sometimes has an erratic 
rhythm (with a closed laptop).
4. The geode driver still has the mode select bug described here:

Not sure whether there was a point reporting this list though.
