MPC5200 and Bestcomm

The current (2.6.22) patchset for the Efika is being held here for
the moment;

That's everything you 'really need' and it's probably the same as
this patch list.

However practically none of it is mainline-worthy at the moment,
Sylvain has detailed too many things he thinks is wrong with it.

I'm having a go with the new ethernet driver patch right now (a
customer asked me for a prebuilt kernel..) so I can get on with
testing that. The most important ones for rewrites besides that
are the AC97 driver (which is a little.. sparse) and actually
using the ATA task.

I'll put in a decent request here for any work on this subject to
please at least attempt to retrieve the tasks from the Efika
firmware rather than replacing them in Linux gratuituously.
I understand this doesn't help the Lite5200 guys.. but.. pretty
please with a cherry on top? :]
