Android on neo1973

 I've now got android up and running on a neo1973, first booting an fso-
minimal image then chroot:ing and starting android from my sdcard

I just "repo upload":ed my changes to bionic when I discovered that
Jean-Baptiste Queru:s changes was merged, so I guess I have to revisit
my patches now :S

Anyway, I have a couple of questions:

1) I have not resolved the issues with the dynamic linker/toolchain
and thumb mode, is it ok to
   check in something to get it up and running in arm-mode and fix
that problem later ? This way
   other people can work on other things like getting the phone-part
working !

2) I kept most of the phone-specific (keymaps etc.) part ni vendor/fic/
neo1973. Is this right ?
    How can I share these parts ?

3) Some of the external components have armv4t support some have not,
is it ok to fall back on
    slow c-implementations and implement those later.

4) The linker of the current android toolchain (specifically ld) by
default turns on the generation
    of blx by default (even with -mcpu=armv4t). How can we submit
patches to the toolchain ?

1. weird shadow along top border of Button atop SurfaceView

curiously, i was able to deal with this by setting the

android:layout_alignParent* properties on the button... you can see
from the gravity props that i was trying to get it (to no avail) to
appear in the bottom right of the screen.. this appeared to solve it.

would still like to understand why the shadow was appearing..
