Landley should have a 3.4 kernel in Aboriginal soon though, and since that supposedly has boot-from-9p, I should be able to setup the test environment I want (everything on the host's fs) using it once it's released. Of course I could do it now if I compile my own ARM kernel, but I'd rather spend my time working on other things at the moment... Rich
