Yes, we should do it. What I tried is actually an updated version of
the proposed branch that is there...

Anyway, it would be something similar to the "proposed" branch Andy
created, but we should actually track the Linus tree. This way the
patches should be ready for upstream submission.

This branch should be named "for-rmk" or something like that, right?
(Remember we need to CC Ben when we submit there). Not all the drivers
in andy-tracking are ready for this and perhaps we should forget about
them temporally so that we can actually get something upstream. There
is some interest in linux-arm-kernel for the Touchscreen driver and it
seems that the OM driver could be in good shape very soon. I should be
sending it soon there for an early review/test (there's a long thread
about it).

I think Werner didn't like the "proposed" branch. He was planning a
new layout for the repository so let's see what he thinks about this.

I guess we should have a "for-rmk" branch and try to get things
upstream in every merge window.

If you really want to try this now you can clone the Linus tree

There's no need to tell you this, but I'll write it here in case
someone else wants to try it out:

cp arch/arm/configs/gta02_defconfig .config
/usr/local/openmoko/arm/bin/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-" make uImage
