I've discussed the changes needed for Niagara support on sparc with
Fabio, who maintains sparc kernels for Ubuntu. His opinion was that
it's not very feasible to backport it to 2.6.16. Basically, if we decide
to stick with 2.6.16, all the arch/sparc64 tree will have to be replaced
by the one from 2.6.17, if we want to see Niagara support in etch.
