No, I don't have one yet; I'm just building the kernel in eager anticipation
for when the new CLLF with 860T hits my desk.

It's just what I renamed fec.c from the snapshot to before I hacked it.

I'm using the linux-2.3.18 snapshot kernel from the ftp site, which has it

I've reconfigured/recompiled my kernel for the Classic, but it sounds like it

the board & doco arrive, I can probably do some kernel hacking as well...
