I'm afraid I have to reject his patch.

The major reason is that I don't want to see any board specific  code
in  files like cpu/arm925t/start.S ; maybe you have a good reason for
your modifiations of such a file, but then you must explain  it,  and
try to implement it in a board-independent way.

Also, there are a few formal resons for the  reject:  you  missed  to
include  a  CHANGELOG  entry, and your files violate the Coding Style
requirements (trailing white space, C++ comments, etc.).

Please clean up and resubmit (and while doing this, please also adapt
the makefiles to the new style  to  allow  for  building  in  another
