I verified that a new install with the 3.0.21 files creates files named 
*2.2.20* in /boot, and also that 

grep 2.2.0 images-2.88/rescue.bin 

from the 3.0.21 archive gives a positive response. 

I believe this was caused by a 1440 instead of 2880 in
b-f/make/powerpc.rules.  I checked in a change, and am building to see
if it works.
