What I meant was this. I had to create my own target, and used as a 
reference the Soekris and AMD targets that existed there. The link 
above is to my submission of a patch to buildroot, that creates another 
device target. The patch is on the bugs.uclibc.org server, and not in 
the svn repo you checked out. The patch should apply cleanly last I 
checked. It is useful to you in that it is a working target that 
creates a linux kernel in the target root fs, to help you debug the 
Soekris board.
