Yes, support for the U2/U3 is getting somewhere; with some hacks it can now
boot multi-user though without network its going to be a dull moment :) Only
one CPU supported yet though. My first task is to finish the Exynos4 USB to
init correctly and have ethernet too.

IIRC the X2 is basicly a beefed up U2/U3 isn't it? Support for it shouldn't be
that hard if the U series gets there.
