It's quite confusing them, since the link just says "Linux, MacOS X

This is generic bug in Linux kernel (version Diablo has by default) that got fixed to kernel upstream and that I back ported to Diablo.

I think the link should include something about "Including utilities for
reflashing firmware" or something similar.

At least change the link so that it says "Flashers for Nokia 770"
instead of just flashers? Perhaps organise the page so that all the N900
stuff is up top, and the rest is underneath in a "Legacy firmare &
tools" section?
