Not merged upstream, powerpc-serial-of is the one which will be merged
upstream, but it needs porting prep boxes yet.

All in all, the powerpc patches need a serious cleanup in the 2.6.16-rc days,
in order to prepare for the ARCH=powerpc transition of the 32bit kernels, if
it is confirmed to be ready for 2.6.16 on all arches we support. Latest there
where problems for oldworld and prep, if i remember well.
