This may sound crazy but how hard is it to integrate a new kernel with the Freescale ltib BSP distribution. I guess I don't fully understand the role of the ltib application. Can a different kernel be placed in the ltib directory and built in the same way the 2.6.10 kernel is?

Aren't changes for the m68K version of the kernel, made by Freescale, pushed back to the general kernel community (because of the GPL)?

Just asking because there's a load of drivers it would be nice to have that don't exist in the 2.6.10 kernel.
