This rocks, btw. Works fine on my E3 and I've been fiddling with the
kernel a little.

I registered the MACH_AMS_DELTA type a while back with the ARM guys, so
have added this to your patch and started trying to get some support for
the flash devices in; I've got the NOR being detected, but it's non CFI
compatible so I can't actually get mtd to talk to it.

I'd really like to get the NAND up and running; I think it's hanging off
what Amstrad call latch2? 0xEC000000?

Anyway, my minor patch to use the proper Delta machine type is at:


You'll need to patch u-boot to use a machine type of 862 as well
obvious, otherwise the kernel won't boot.
