Outstanding thing is power management: in that regard clamshell
devices have more upstream support (basically only spitz).

The defconfig state has been 'normalized' in order to be coherent for
all zaurus models.
Surely more features/modules have to be enabled now. We are open to
I can personally test only corgi, spitz and poodle, so pxa devices.
Regarding collie, last confirmation I have is that it boots fine
2.6.37 (keyboard was not registered before).

Keeping userspace compiling/working for 2.6.2x is imho today a waste of time.
Think about udev, hal (deprecated),...
Please note the latest kernels deprecated the old ATA driver thus CF
is now /dev/sd*.
We'll upload asap 22.214.171.124 kexecboot-kernels for the 'new' userland.
Finally, the future of zaurus support depends on the support the
meta-handhelds layer (for oe-core) will have.
