Thomas, just a heads up - the VFP commit you mention above should show
up in v3.7-rc5 which I imagine will be released this weekend, and the
debug_ll_io_init feature I mentioned in another response is already
available is arm-soc branch devel/debug_ll_init. If you rebase this
patch on a merge of those two branches, it should be in good shape for
me to apply it.
