SubjectRFC: Remove the arm26 port
Considering the state of the arm26 port, I do hereby suggest to remove 
it from the Linx kernel since it's far from a usable state and doesn't
seem to come back into a usable state.

If anyone wants to work on getting this port back into a usable state in
the forseeable future he should speak up now.
