Yes, I have started work on vt8605. The north bridge is close to the
vt8601, but there are some differences. I am currently setting up a new
part of the tree for my board and chip sets. That part is done, I am
just fixing compile errors currently. The south bridge on the other
hand is a whole different chip. It is nothing like any other south
bridge that is currently supported in the tree. That will take some work.
If you would like I can send you a copy of my tree.
Our boards are close in nature, just a different CPU and NIC.
