Back to buildroot, successful root system deployed

I was unable to compile glibc with the target architecture set to xscale-linux-elf. I think I should have used arm-linux at this moment, which is the same that buildroot uses. Back to buildroot, I've removed the software that was giving compile errors (jffs2/mtd utils) and was able to create a basic root filesystem. I was unable to use the system, however, because I don't have an installed keyboard and there was no virtual keyboard installed. I was unable to boot a newly compiled ARM stock kernel, with USB gadget support for telneting into it. Now I'll rebuild buildroot with Tiny X and Qtopia while I download hackndev's modified kernel and try to enable USB support.
