Nice to see a new c7x0 candidate for mantainer!
+1 for me (he he, I'm just too busy atm, can only help for some testing)

+1 from me to jump on 2.6.25 wagon
The underlying problem was linux-rp-2.6.23 in .dev had big issues with
suspend/resume. I personally suggested the move to 2.6.24, being
desesperated by the *not resuming* device (SL-C860).
Moreover Stanislav was working on Sharp remote control and the patches
were only for 2.6.24.
This one had also some minor glitches, like this pxa2xx_udc log I
immediately noticed and reported to Richard Purdie. His opinion was
"we can live with it", nobody having yet tested the usb functionality.
Then some user started complaining about usb-ethernet (seems
solved,isn't) and then the WPA renaming problem.
I remember proposals to compile the crypt modules in kernel (hoping
the size doesn't grow too much).
Such things happen when too frequent changes to defconfig are done!
Try mtn log --diff fo 2.6.23 and see what I mean.
Anyway the 2.6.24 still needs some finishing: If you look at the
bottom of the linux-rp-2.6.24.bb you'll see there are no
mtd-module.patch for c7x0 but only for akita. Why?
