Speaking of which: does the hpcarm port support any of the
currently available crop of handhelds? I'd like to start a
personal project to turn something like the iPAQ rx1955, which is
cheap but has WiFi, into a remote control. That would be a deal
nicer if I could do it on NetBSD, but the supported platforms on
the hpcarm page all look to be quite old. I doubt that a
pre-XScale StrongArm system could be had, now. Or are XScales
and the Samsung ARMs compatible enough?
