Sounds ok.

The other thing that needs to be done is the help documentation.  I tend to
use "make xconfig" when configuring my kernel.  This gives me the ability to
load and store configuration files and then only change the bits I need to
without going through the entire configuration processes.  The other reason is
that it has a help button for all the configuration options.  I believe "make
menuconfig" also has help features.  There are so many options that it is hard
to remember what all of them do (unless you have read the docs a million
times).  The 2.2.x and 2.3.x series from kernel mirrors have the help docs but
none of the embedded archives (embedded-2.2.5 and mpc8xx-2.3.10) seem to have
them.  I think its just a matter of copying the help files to the
Documentation directory.
