This has been talked about a bit recently on this list...

This is a known limitation in the 20030305 uClinux-dist (and in
fact in all previous dist releases too). The missing code had
never been put into CVS.

The code is now in CVS (as of a couple of days ago). If you want
all those missing files, and a few updated ones then get uClinux-2.4.x
from cvs.uclinux.org. There may still be one open issue with the
FEC driver, but the rest of the code should be all there now.
