Jonas, can you please explain me how you can come to the conclusion that
ide-generic is *NEEDED* on powerpc, if there is at least one kernel config
which does not have it and works perfectly ? 

I think you are just arguing for the sake of arguing, and failing to even try
to understand the issue at hand ?

Sure, i guess this means my vote will have to go for no more supporting yaird
as default ramdisk generator in these conditions.

This opinion of yours will only be acceptable if you can bring me a single use
case scenario where this is the case.

Frankly, i am sick of discussing this with you, since you fail to provide any
kind of valid argument, apart from you believing it may hurt, while you have
absolutely no idea of what you are speaking about, and i have no understanding
of you hurting the pegasos users just because you don't want to take the time
to even consider the issue as you should.

Remember, i do debian/pegasos support as RL job, and by your stubborness you
hurt me in my day job and cost me money, so please understand the issue at
hand and try to find a solution, instead of just trying to justify your
inaction with circular arguments without fundation.

It is a damn 3 line patch or so, and it would have taken you less time to
investigate this than you lost in replying to this email.
