Yes I am trying to build a kernel image with geode lx frame buffer driver
and otherstuff. Even this has been easy because of the rejects at the time
of patching the driver with 2.6.-16-54.
But I wanted to see some of the debug messages that are given out at the
time of initializing core boot.
Just one question I was using a 512k part and then I switched over to a 1MB
flash part and the VSA initialization went through without trouble, so where
do you think is the blob location hardcoded.
