Well, framebuffer should not affect the stability, but keyboard code
isn't committed yet.  My keyboard code needs some cleanup and I'm not
having enough time to do.

I use my 720 to read mail (with mgl + emacs + wanderlust) in train on
a rather daily basis, so I think its stability is enough for
demonstration purposes.

BTW, I've noticed the following troubles caused be recent changes.
I hope I'll be fixing this in a week or so...

- newer (> 2001/05/21 ?) hpcboot cannot boot kernel
- text mode display characters too dim (but no problem with mgl)
