Thank you, that's what I wanted to hear :-)

Well, I don't know how the platform specific things got moved from 2.4 
to 2.6 in the past (yes I am a newbie). I have a working 
2.4.26-pm854-something with a platform/pm854_defconfig (and some changed 
non-official(?) files for the PCI and MTDs) and I want to get the same 
for 2.6.10+ without changing things at the wrong place.
