Kindle 3.0 Source Released

Not sure when this was up, but a search on this site shows nobody else posting it, so...

Direct from Amazon:
http://kindle.s3.amazonaws.com/Kindl...5460094.tar.gz

I'll post more info when I dig through the source.

EDIT:
Kernel is now 2.6.26 (vs 2.6.22 on Kindle 2). MarioMX (Kindle 2's system) no longer has a config file (don't know how similar the new arch is, or what the codename is).
EDIT 2:
The config files Amazon added are:
imx21ads_defconfig
imx27ads_defconfig
imx31_3stack_defconfig
imx31ads_defconfig
imx35_3stack_defconfig
imx35_luigi_defconfig
imx35evb_defconfig
imx37_3stack_defconfig
imx51_3stack_defconfig
Could "Luigi" be the new Kindle's internel name?
Ok, googling all these file names gives results except "imx35_luigi_defconfig", so it must be new to the world. Could the Kindle 3 be a MX35 machine?
EDIT 3:
Yup, Luigi is the new Kindle, and iMX35 is it's arch. Also, the root fs is now 256MB, rather then 128MB. And, as expected the new kernel supports wireless & netfilter (for wireless functions). One day, I'll try to compile this kernel for now-old Kindle 2. Wifi Card seems to have an "ATHEROS AR6000" chip. USB Networking is still in the kernel (not sure about firmware though).
EDIT 4:
There's SD card support is in the kernel, but unsure if it's in the hardware.
Edit 5:
Kindle 2 support is gone (at least in this source release of the kernel). Either amazon will release a different (older) version of the kernel for kindle 2 3.0, or kindle 2 won't get 3.0.

I have added iMX35 to the E-book Reader Matrix. Can you tell if the EInk controller is still an Epson Broadsheet (S1D13521)?

Also, AFAICT, it seems the Kernel is now based in Ingo Molnar's RT patchset.

(Linux version 2.6.26-rt-lab126 (build@ubuntu-jaunty-build-01) (gcc version 4.1.2) #5 PREEMPT RT Sat Jul 31 01:09:00 PDT 2010)
