EPIA-M(II) currently doesn't compile; like many other ports it has the
udelay problem. I've been meaning to run through all the svn commits
to try and find the one that broke this, but haven't had the time. I
thought Ollie knew how to fix this, but I haven't seen any reply from
anyone to the various queries asking about it.
