I did, twice. I use a couple of scripts to do the building, and I am still
required to add
--------------
echo now we have find the /lib/firmware/amd-ucode and copy it
mkdir -p firmware/amd-ucode
cp -f -R /lib/firmware/amd-ucode/ ./firmware/
-------------
to my buildit26 script, and to add:
---------------------
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin"
--------------------
To my .config, else it hangs for 60 seconds, about .65 seconds into the boot,
requesting the firmware amd-ucode/microcode_amb.bin and can't find it.

With the above additions, it appears to be running nominally here. glxgears
was, at 2.6.32, about 275 fps, and its about 400 now so that is welcomed.

Thank you.
