Well, I think its reasonable amount of time.  We are talking about  
4-6 months between now and when a 2.6.15 is likely to get released.   
I'm not 100% sure who broken rpxcllf, but the issue seems to be with  
the 8xx_io/fec.c driver so it should be resolved with panto's updated  

I'm just trying to get us back into a sane state and hopefully we  
will regress building of all our defconfigs more often to catch  
things sooner.
