[vox] uClinux talk

Here's Rob Wehrli's outline for the talk he'll be flying out to give on
Feburary 18th:

> Hitachi H8-uClinux for a GNU Generation!
> Presentation by: Rob Wehrli

> -------------------------------------------------
> Arizona Cooperative Power and Hitachi invite the
> Linux Usersgroup of Davis California to join for
> a night of technical discussion and presentation
> by Rob Wehrli on the subject of uClinux on H8.

He's asked if I could let him know what we'd like him to focus on, and
what topics we think he can gloss over, to make it fit in ~45minutes.

> Workstation Requirements
> Obtaining Sources
> GNU Tools

> Porting the gdb-stub
> Downloading the Kernel
> Compiling uClib
> Embedded Device Drivers
> Debugging Tools & Techniques
> Userland Applications

> Speaker Bio:
> Rob Wehrli is the Director of Engineering at Arizona Cooperative Power in 
> Glendale, Arizona, which is in the Phoenix metropolitan area.  Rob began 
> hacking Linux starting with kernel version .82 in 1992, when the entire 
> Linux kernel and source fit on a single 1.44MB floppy disk.  Before Linux, 
> Rob worked extensively with a variety of UNIX platforms including HP-UX, 
> DEC and SCO, NextStep (OSF Mach) and SunOS.  Rob writes numerous technical 
> articles for various industry publications including Linux Journal, 
> Software Development Magazine and Windows CE Tech Journal.  Rob designed a 
> number of exciting platforms including several Windows CE and embedded 
> Linux portables before taking on the uClinux port to the Hitachi H8S-2148 
> embedded microcontroller.  Rob drag races his 522 cubic inch Big Block Ford 
> powered, 1966 Mustang Coupe tube chassis drag car on Friday nights when he 
> can get away from the office.  Rob's dream job is using and working with 
> Linux fulltime and getting away from the very short Windows leash.  His 
> company provides consulting services for embedded (Linux, uClinux, WinCE), 
> desktop and client-server (Windows/UNIX) applications, system integration 
> and hardware and software design services for customers of many types.
