Not that I know of.

It would appear not.

I've built the latest mainline kernel with gcc-4.4.1 and uploaded them 
at http://www.telegraphics.com.au/~fthain/linux-2.6.31/

That should fix the ethernet problem, but mac_scsi viability is anyone's 
guess. In the past it failed in different ways on the machines that I 
tested, but hopefully it will work on your IIfx.
