may we FIRST see how you are going to fit it into mach-mxc? NAK from
me before I see that.

BTW, I understand that you are taking steps in the right direction but
having worked with stmp3xxx and multiple i.MXs, I see it as a great
pity that a low-end but stable and convenient platform has been
effectively killed by a semiconductor giant to avoid competition with
unstable and painful to work with lower end i.MXs, and is also being
killed virtually -- by you guys.
