Hi Hauke,
thanks for the work you've already done. I've read the email in July but
I've not responded because I also don't have a "Routerboard 333" or
"Routerboard 600" - this are actually the only two officially supported
devices by OpenWrt. But I can offer you for testing purpose one of our
routers (XM17xx), which are also based on mpc83xx

It is being designed to be shipped with OpenWrt from stock, so that our
customers can have full control over its device an adapt it fully to
their needs.
I must confess, that until this project I only was using OpenWrt as
"normal" customer on my personal devices at home so I welcomed the
decision here :-)

I'm on the code review now and making myself familiar with the concepts
of OpenWrt and the changes already done here. I (personally) would be
glad to share the code in OpenWrt, so far the community is interested in
another device running OpenWrt directly from trunk.

Concerning the router, please contact me directly (by mail/phone) in
case of interest.
