I have some patches for the DragonBall series to enable SPI etc there,
some patches to support the SuperVZ variant, some tools to upload
Linux via the integrated serial bootloader.
The DragonBall is probably what anyone that wants to build a 68K retro
computer should use as the DRAM controller is integrated and it can
access 32MB of SDRAM.
I haven't tested it recently but it should still work and I have
hardware and I'm willing to look after it if no one else wants to.
