I don't know if 2.6.24 has superior support for some subarch, thats why I am
asking here. 

But AFAIK there are no etch CDs for m68k? So perhaps with this, we might get
some current install CDs? (Disclaimer: I did not check if there are etch
CDs, but newer is often better?)

And as I said, 2.6.25 will remove a lot of SCSI drivers, you don't want to
upgrade your kernel to that.. unless somebody fixes the drivers, ports them
to the new scheme or whatever is needed, Geert and Roman probably know what
has to be done.
