Okay, here is the problem.  We have a port that works (using 1 processor
only) but its based on the 64360 code that was put into the -galileo
tree.  AFAIK, that 64360 code it not acceptable for the _2_4_devel or
the -2.4 tree so we can't put it in those trees.  There is also a file
with a non-GPL license so that has to be rewritten before anything is

When that's done, I am told there will be a preview kit for it available
from mvista.com.  Preview kits are freely available but you have to
register (free).  Right now, that preview kit is expected to be
available in ~4 weeks but no guarantees.

That's the best I can do so if that's not good enough, you'll have to do
it yourself or maybe someone else has a working src tree they are
willing to share.
