Can someone enlighten me as to the purpose of the Lib/plat-xxxx directories. What goes in there? Why?
They're for platform-specific modules. In most cases, the only platform-specific modules are collections of system constants generated by Tools/scripts/h2py.py. For an example, see the regen script in plat-linux2. (It assumes you've set up an alias "h2py" for the script.) I wouldn't bother unless you have an actual use in mind.
I'll bundle up my patches and post them to the patch manager.
