At the moment, I'm mostly trying to sit down and figure out the whole
device tree stack.  That, and keep up with the irq rework BenH did.  I
won't really be digging in for another couple weeks, but then I hope to
start actually doing something.

That sounds like a good plan.  I know a guy already working on emac, but
it's a bit of a unique setup he's got.  I'll try and get some patches
out of him soon.
