Well then I guess for 405GPr support and the SystemACE drivers
I'm on my own. Is there a git tree for main line 2.4 maintenance
(against which I could maintain patches) or am I on my own there

It should be easy enough to rescue the gpr support form the bk
working dir that I have (or the mvista repository as you point
out) and make up patches.
