These are managed per board for now. Look in your board's directory for 
mptable.c, irq_tables.c and dsdt.asl. If these don't exist (or aren't 
enabled in Kconfig), you're not doing any such configuration yet, which 
Linux might or might not like, which seems to differ between kernel

If you do, please copy the s1846 sources with "svn cp 
src/mainboard/tyan/s1846 src/mainboard/tyan/s1832dl", and move your 
changes into the new directory. This ensures that the patches vs. the 
old board are easier to review (only the changes against the old board), 
and that your files keep repository history.
This should also help a bit with keeping your board up to date, but 
really, if you manage to get into Linux at all, the code is ready for 
publication in my opinion.
Your benefit of early publication: When we do some sweeping changes 
across the tree, we try to drag your board along (not always 
successfully, but the biggest part is done). If you have a local copy, 
you're on your own.
