Adding a new ARM board on the Linux kernel

Today I started adding our board to mainline kernel. First thing you need to have is a machine ID. To get this machine ID you need to register and enter all information at this page:

http://www.arm.linux.org.uk/developer/machines/?action=new

After doing that you need to create a basic configuration file to your board, basically:
arch/arm/configs/YOURBOARD_defconfig
arch/arm/mach-YOURPROCESSOR/Kconfig
arch/arm/mach-YOURPROCESSOR/Makefile
arch/arm/mach-YOURPROCESSOR/YOURBOARD.c

  1. I am also trying to learn how to add support for new boards or platform into linux kernel. I would like to hear about your project’s progress. I would like to help you in your project. If possible please send me the source code of your project.

    Thanks.
