Wow, this is quite impressive! You must be one of the first that have this
in a real distribution for ARM :)

Do you have any references like a git-commit or discussion on a
mailinglist for this? I'd like to match this with some other ARM
hardware (non/OLPC) issues I have seen.
I joined the OLPC mailinglists only a while ago, and I must say that I
am really impressed with the work all of you are doing! It really seems
that you make progress quickly. Congratulations with yet an other
release update :)
