muscat is a Thecus N2100, (iop32x with 512MB RAM)

alwyn and antheil are identical Marvell development boards - see
http://blog.einval.com/2010/09/27#marvell_buildds for more details.

If you want to know more, http://db.debian.org/machines.cgi lists more
details for most of the official machines used by Debian.

If you're getting inconsistent results between antheil and alwyn then
that's worrying. :-(

You can ask for access to abel (the armel porter box) and play with
stuff there if it helps.
