That would be me. I haven't yet submitted patches for my JSE
board, but if you look back to the last few weeks in this list,
you'll see plenty of messages with SystemACE in their subject.

Including a patch on 1 April 2004 to generalize the driver a
bit. MonteVista folks have approved the patch, so I hope it
turns up inofficial trees in due course.
