I've been meaning to ask about that.... what's the current difference
between the standard Fedora kernel and the OLPC one. I've got a src
rpm of it but haven't had time yet to unpack and investigate. I know
of the dcon driver, and obv something that makes the suspend/resume
work. What's stopping these from being upsteamed? Even if in the case
of the dcon driver its in the staging area of the kernel? At a guess
there's also something for rainbow, but I have no idea what else there
would be.

Happy to help, let me know where I can be helpful :-)

Cheers,
Peter
