If this kernel is based on my very latest patches (I uploaded a new
version yesterday, I forgot to mention it, sorry), then it boots the
Sawtooth G4. On this machine, only one USB port works (I'll have to wait
for Paul to get his machine so he can look at what's wrong, It's
difficult to fix this remotely), but the rest of the kernel looks ok.
