  Hi, Detlev

Sorry for responding lately, since I was on a vacation.

Anyway, does this mean 2.4 kernel based ELDK toolchain don't have 
support for these cpus ?
If so, do you plan to add this support to there also ?
Since our boards depend on 2.4 kernel and converting them to 2.6 kernel 
based environment
means a lot of work right now.

I loved your marketing tags :) Will not forget if we come to the point 
of commercial support

I.yi çal?s,malar ...
