Ummm...if you look through the archives you will notice this has
been discussed.  They are more than "minor" changes, mostly due to
the use of the serial interface to the EPIC.

HHL would support the X3 if you purchased a subscription and
specifically asked for that.  I have the patches, they just won't
work with the latest 2_4_devel tree and they aren't suitable as
a generic addition.  When I get the current tree to work properly
for 4xx/8xx again, I'll make the updates for both the 7450 and the X3.
I either have to convince the OpenPIC maintainers this is a good
addition (which I don't even think it is) or find an alternative.
