You are right telling that 2.6.30 is outdated *but* this revision has
been intensively tested and integrates patches that have not yet
completed their mainline integration process (ISI for instance).
However as you say, "nearly comprehensive" AT91SAM9263 support has been
integrated in mainline Linux for a long time...

Hey, not everybody has the same needs...
ARM926 is not outdated it is old like a good old whiskey and very lively.
