Umm... no, there are two entries which contain this string: "TQM860L"
and "TQM860L_FEC", but thse are (or were) considered to be different.

Actualy I meant to test "./MAKEALL -m 8xx" which appears to work
mostly fine.  In any case the git error message should not be printed.


-> ./MAKEALL -m AMX860
AMX860:Joakim.Tjernlund at transmode.se ptyser at xes-inc.com ratbert at faraday-tech.com wd at denx.de wdenk

These entries like "wdenk" here from CVS times are really obsolete.
Should we keep them, or introduce a cut-off-date (or -commit) ?

Best regards,

A bore is someone who persists in holding his own views after we have
enlightened him with ours.
