well, I consider these as minor problems. Up to now, we have no users of the driver
and anyone who wants to build it should know what he does (e.g. patch a board file,
choose the right config).

Having said that, I want to submit a patch in the next days which adds nvec support
to the paz00 board file. If it's not to late for 3.2, I will also patch the nvec
Makefile to fix possible build problems Julian mentioned. Otherwise it will be 3.3
stuff.
