They both will, but afaik .32 needs to be compiled for it specifically;
.33 might do it in a nicer way (since support got upstream instead of
being a seperate branch hack.) Should be obvious from the "make
menuconfig" menus.

Lars - Please update with what you get done with this; I'll be hacking
on it a bunch myself when my Lemote order gets to me in a few weeks.

Note that there is a blob in PMON to do some VGA initialization; we're
trying to get that removed - it's unclear at this point if that will
stop VGA from working altogether or only stop PMON stuff from displaying
on the screen; but Fuloong has a serial port, so should be useful as a
server even without any VGA output.
