Nothing to build yet, the current status was "stalled" due to the driver freezing 
the machine a while back, which required help from NXP and NXP was not ready 
for any sort of help due to the DRM involved, as far as i can guess. (Eventhough
some sort of preliminary specs were provided under NDA, which were not sufficient
in any manner)

But recently as of some days back, we have had good discussions and proceeded
quite a lot further in this aspect. Eventually changes are much expected in this front, 
a while later. stay tuned.. But don't expect anything immediately.
