Nice to get some feedback, Your the second person that has used it.

It will work conceptually with 2.4.25 as I'm currently running a
relatively recent denx kernel with similar changes. I haven't
published a recent patch yet as there wasn't much feedback last

I've recently done some more work on this to clean it up, for example
USB didn't work with that previous patch but they now coesist happily.

I'll look at posting a patch soon when it's merged into my shiny new GIT tree.
