I'm currently working with a custom design on a Xilinx ML300 board
to evaluate the realtime capabilities of the linux kernel with rt-patches.
Since this is my first experience with embedded Linux I had the most
trouble with understanding the coherences of the most general stuff
like the difference between ppc and powerpc as well as the need for
a device tree within powerpc but not ppc. Everything is documented
very well for it's own, but I would appreciate to see a documentation
that gives a bit more overview to the subject which is important for

Well, I'm going to document my work from the system design using
EDK and ISE through to creating a running linux from scratch based
on this design. I'd like to support your documentation as much as I can.
