BSP porting guide from 2.6.17 to 2.6.39


My current task is to port a working non-mainline Board Support Package based on an ARM CPU (Embedded System) from the kernel 2.6.17 to 2.6.39. Do you have any documentation available which can help me achieving that task as there were major kernel changes regarding BSPs?

As of now, the init routines for the machine, IRQs and timer seem to work (or at least don't result in a kernel panic), but I am not able to get the UART running (8250serial). I'm smelling issues with virtual/physical memory...

Thanks and best regards,
