I object seriously.

  Some of what you have might be useful.:) OCP is not just for 4xx.  In
fact the name may need to change.  I have been working on overhalling
this interface and testing the ideas before having a review of the
changes.  I am on the hook to Paul and others to get this out in the
open to discuss and am not ready.  So if you could just relax and wait I
would appriciate it.  I would rather see the 2.5 kernel boot on a few
4xx boards
