    Hi everyone, 
    I am wishing to port BLCR to an ARM platform, and I was wondering
    whether you could offer some advice and also answer several questions.
    First of all, I can see that nearly all the architecture dependent code
    is in the files arch/cr_arch.h and arch/cr_atomic.h - is there any
    documentation/explanation of what the  assembly code in these two files
    is doing? 
    Also, are are there any other architecture-dependent parts to BLCR
    besides those in the above two files? 
    I would appreciate any advice (perhaps based upon previous experience)
    or information you can give to someone embarking this sort of task.
    At the moment I am simply trying to build BLCR "as is" on an ARM
    platform (natively), and I am having trouble getting past the configure
    stage, with the configure script refusing to accept my kernel symbol
    table in System.map. When not including --with-system-map, the configure
    script does not find my System.map file (even though it is in the
    standard locations prescribed), while with the flag the error generated
    "configure: error: failed to validate System.map"
    I have rebuilt my kernel (2.6.17, using cross-compilation), for a Debain
    linux system, and the kernel source should be configured.  Any ideas
    would be appreciated.
