You do not necessarily need the at91-patchset from Andrew.
2.6.33 works fine on at91sam9261 without it...


Thanks for the info. I will try to compile 2.6.33 now. But i got a mail
from andrew that he updated at91 patchset to 2.6.32 . for clarification jus
verifying tat u mean from 2.6.33 onwards u don't need at91 patches and
can directly compile without waiting Andrew's patchset . If tats case then
Andrew can update that in linux4samdotorg website so that it will be helpful
You only need the changes from Andrew in case there is something in
there that you require, you should look at the changelog to be sure.
But, the at91sam9261 is already for several years in mainline and it
works fine (even much older kernels than 2.6.33 will work without it,
for example we used 2.6.24, 2.6.26, 2.6.31 without it), Andrews
patchset is just a set of additional changes that will likely be
pushed to mainline at some time.


got it. thanks a lot for your clarification and info.
warm regards,
Ravi Kulkarni.
