I don't think that all modules are compiled in because the current
kernel is only 896K in size. And the OM kernels are ~1,7M.
I already though about compiling the freerunner kernel myself having a
bit knowledge about normal pc linux kernel compilation.
But for this i have to set up cross compile what i never did before. So
first i have to find a good how-to which describes how i fetch the
kernel with git (never used it) and how to cross compile it for my
freerunner on my pc.
It would be much easier if i got a working kernel and modules. Maybe
andy has a bit spare time to update his website. Else i have to jump in
the cold water and do this on my own. :/
