So, to make a bold suggestion, would it be possible to drop support for
this board? If even you guys don't have the hardware to test it, maybe
we could start deprecating that DDX? I think that Adams work to phase
out the cfb code is excellent, and I'd hate to see it held back only to
support a board that noone has access to anymore :)
