Yep. not to bad.  I've got the beginnings of the port already done.  I
got hung up on getting my dump_spd routine to return somthing else
besides zero.  Its really wierd.  I can actually see the data on the
SMbus happening but I don't ever seem to get a result back.

Like Eric says if you don't have to to the RAM init then it will
probally move really quickly.

I haven't had chance to work on it for a while.  If your are
interested I can whip up a patch vs current cvs and send it to you. 
It's not in the V2 tree.
