After reading the rest of this (old) thread, I'm thinking that maybe a good
compromise between duplicating or including code could be to include the C
files (which don't need to be modified for this port), and duplicate the
config files which need more intrusive changes.

This is a resynced version which does that.  Please consider appliing
it.  Status is almost the same as before:

System boots and is usable with usb keyboard.


  - serial port
  - vga (old pci card)
  - memtest86+ succeeds with minor raminit.c tweaking (see the
    "[PATCH] Athlon64 K8 fixes" thread)
  - ata disk
  - usb


  - ps/2 keyboard
  - vga pci-e card (??)
  - any other pci card I tried

wasn't tested:

  - sata
  - game port
  - onboard audio (not supported by alsa anyway)
  - ps/2 mouse
