ixp4xx gets some updates from Debian, though I don't know how many users we still have. The once-popular NSLU2 has only 32MB RAM and most other models seem to have 64MB, which is a bit small for a standard distribution.

We have one outstanding patch for it, which adds the io{read,write}{16,32}be functions used by some drivers... that will probably never be used on this platform.

It does sound like a useful patch though, since I'm trying to improve the build coverage and make randconfig work. If you send that patch, I'll apply it.
