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.
