Ok, thanks. It seems the BW situation is improving. But I'll wait until
the release of the VME driver before going back to vger. I've been bitten
very hard in January when vger was closed and had to go back to
official tree. Is there such a big diff between vger and Linus since 2.2.4
(which was painful enough to apply on my tree) ? 

BTW: which bootloader do you use ? I'm going to make significant changes
to prepboot soon (switching to a CHRP like map when a Raven/Falcon/Hawk
is found) ?
