We're already shipping efika.forth in Fedora rawhide, and in my updated
spins of Fedora 8. It's a pain in the arse, but it kind of works.

It would be much better if the kernel would 'just work'. The ideal way
of achieving that is for the firmware to be fixed -- but that's been

working round it in the kernel seems to be the next best option.
