It might be useful, just a lot of different ones.

You can just roll your own. If you download the linux kernel source.  
There is a marvell/sheeva default config already there.

It took about an hour to compile using the default kernel/fs that  
shipped with the guruplug both usb/esata external drives using ext4  
and 50 minutes using nfs3 (to an xfs host, and nosync) which to me  
still doesn't seem quite right but entirely possible.

I need to replace the kernel and try again. :) There have been some  
fairly big changes in the block layer code since 2.6.34 kernel and get  
nfs4 support working.
