Is that a "Linux rule" ? Is there other ones ? (I always convert tabs to

Barebox is so much better than Uboot, you guys did a really good job.

Hi Sasha,

I didn't how to split the patches so I splitted everything :) I'll fight
with git to revert my commits and do it again...

This port is working but it's going to be a long process including it in
barebox git because I don't have a lot of time
(my baby boy needs my time) and I'm not a git master at all, I'm just an
hardware guy playing with the kernel (why the
hell it is so complicated ? I think it is kind of a filter/test for
patchers. If you can't use git you can't send patches ;)).

Souldn't be less complicated if I had a separate branch to work on it ?
