Need new support, these are MK48T59/559 parts.  I'm not saying it couldn't
be added, just that nobody's taken the time yet to clean this stuff up.
It's on our _LONG_ list of todos but I just made dinstall remove the
sysvinit link if on a PReP machine for now.

Unfortunately, we can't move very fast since experienced Linux/PPC
developers aren't exactly plentiful out in pool of engineers available for
hire. :-/
