So what's Debian going to ship with on PowerPC? If it's 2.2.19 I'd say
some serious effort needs to be put into backporting some core features.
But without a machine to test this on I'll not gonna touch this.

I'll leave the heavy lifting to Stephan.

Any new drivers as compared to 2.2? The threaded wakeup might not be
necessary (did we find a way to fix pmud's trackpad restore BTW?) and
there was basic sleep support in 2.2.x :-)
