Rapid archive bringup for new hardware

2012-11-01 09:00..09:55 in B3-M2

Discussion on how we can do a quick (and possibly dirty) archive build for new hardware.

The port may require new patches to the toolchain and/or kernel. Cross compiling is essential, as the new hardware may not be available.

Most other packages will remain as-is, but may need a recompile with the new toolchain. We should be fine with a very minimal initial package set. Perhaps minbase?

Support for "rapid bringup" archives will be variable. The general use-case will be for proof-of-concept code while full support for an official archive is in progress.
