It also incorporates Ben's latest developments in supporting Apple's more
difficult features, including power management support for the latest laptops.
Power management features for older Apple laptops have made their way into the
linuxppc_2_4 tree, and into the mainline 2.4.x source. However, Ben's tree
always has the latest fixes and tweaks - hence why so many PPC Linux, especially
Apple PPC Linux, users choose his kernel.
