I just wanted to add, that if anyone is going to get busy again with the 8xx 
SPI driver(s) in u-boot and linux-2.4, I'd like to know, since I am too.
In u-boot there are two 8xx-SPI-drivers, one software and one in hardware, and 
they seem both broken now (I'm still using CVS versions around 1.1.2 
somewhere maybe I should cvs update :-)
Specifically spi_xmit() get each other in the way. There are two such 
functions in u-boot, both non-static and with (very) different prototypes, so 
I am starting to figure out the best way of fixing that mess. Is anyone busy 
with the same task?
