I am porting NetBSD to OMAP1610 right now.
It can successfully reach to the stage trying to load ramdisk as root.
The bootloader I use is U-boot.=20
I am thinking how to pass some parameters, like ramdisk image location,
bootloader to kernel(initarm).
Console is ready. But chars output is extra slow.
I found that "const struct cpuidtab cpuids" table donot recognize
(ARM926), and therefore some capabilities of this CPU, like some kind of

cache, don't be turned on.
