SubjectRe: [PATCH] m32r - New architecure port to Renesas M32R processor
Geert,

Thank you for your quick reply.

> However, I think you best upgrade to 2.4.25 first.
I agree with you. I will try to upgrade it.

> And what about a 2.6 port? :-)
We have ported 2.6.0 kernel, and we are still working to add drivers.
But I hope we can release it soon. :-)

The m32r kernel also supports the wonderful features of 2.6 kernel
like other architecture.
- O(1) scheduler support
- Preemtible kernel support
- SMP support
