Well, I do have a "working" u-boot for the platform... But yeah, it would
certainly be "better" to have it upstream. *sigh*

I've been using Wandboards, which I've liked, but I discovered that what I
was using just wasn't powerful enough to do what I wanted to do.. So I
was looking for replacements for my wandboards. I have a handful of these
R1 devices from work, so I've been able to play with them and verify that,
yes, it can do what I want and perform much better than the wandboard quad

Let me turn this around; what board (with case) would *YOU* recommend for
some small, low-power arm-based server platforms?
