This is great news! Thanks a lot for your work!

The LX-based OLPC should become another subdirectory of olpc/, just like
rev_a and btest, right? I'd rather not touch the existing directories if
the changes are that massive. This way we wouldn't break any targets
(just add a new one), correct?

I assume the source is not publically available? That would sure be
great! If not, what exact usage rights come with the binary?
Also, is the VSA binary needed for _any_ LinuxBIOS usage on the LX, or
just to enable certain features? In other words, can we do _anything_
with the LX without the VSA binary?
