I've been working on an armboot port for the Intel Lubbock and a custom
PXA250 design. It works, but needs some cleanup. And I have an issue with the
amount of time it takes to decompress and boot a kernel. I have not released
any code yet but can send you a bootleg version if you like.

Consider asking Eric for CVS access to Blob.
Not only will he give one to you, which simplifies development --- but
he and others (Stefan etc.) will also make valuable comments on your
sourcecode which improves code-quality.
This is from my own experience, I once ported Blob to the SA-1110 based
Accelent IDP. :-)
