From features of the new Linux 2.6.23:

From KernelNewbies.org:

"Add USB driver for the USB AMD5536 UDC, as found in the AMD Geode CS5536 (southbridge).

Add framebuffer support for the display controller integrated into the AMD Geode LX processors

Wanted to start a new thread but don't think I can yet... anyway...

I'm working with several Geode-based SBC's (Soekris net5501, Traverse Geos2, and PC Engines Alix 6F2), and porting Openwrt to them with Linux 2.6.38 (or sometimes 2.6.39).

I've noticed that I consistently see:

cs5535-clockevt: Could not allocate MFPGT timer
...
geodewdt: No timers were available

when booting, and cs5535-clockevt fails to load:

root@OpenWrt:/# insmod cs5535-clockevt
cs5535-clockevt: Could not allocate MFPGT timer
insmod: can't insert 'cs5535-clockevt': No such device
root@OpenWrt:/# echo $?
19
root@OpenWrt:/#

Is anyone else using Geode-based designs with 2.6.38 or later and using the MFGPT's (multi-function general purpose timers)?

Thanks,

-Philip
