Kumar, I thought that we had some volunteers to take care of some of
those. I know that I still care about ep405, and I'm willing to


the code.

Well, it has been almost two months since Kumar asked about


for this board. Nothing happened since then.

Why is it not fixed yet? Please, send a patch which fixes it. This is
the _best_ way to keep this board in the tree, not some empty
maintenance _promises_.

When we recover our history from the linuxppc-2.4/2.5 trees we can
show exactly how long it's been since anybody touched ep405.

Quick googling shows that it's been almost 2 years since the last
mention of ep405 (exluding removal discussions) on linuxppc-embedded.
Last ep405-related commits are more than 2 years ago.

So we are ok with it being removed. This seems to be the only board port that I removed that has caused any noise.
