If it really is a SA1100 then it should have a MMU and should be using the standard kernel with Russell King's patches. No idea if Possio's patches do anything strange to the kernel though. Can't really glean much information from Possio's pages about the hardware itself.

The PX20 looks quite a neat product actually

This looks suspiciously like he's using ucLinux or something similar, operating on an MMU-less system. Since there's no memory or stack protection, errors or stack overflows can do some pretty wild things.
