I just tried to patch a clean extracted 2.4.22 vanilla tarball but ran into problems.
The patch creates a include/asm/ directory.. but make wants include/asm to be
a symlink to include/asm-<arch>. So I let the patch go ahead, did a
'diff -Naur include/asm include/asm-ppc' and there is no difference.
So I guess it is superfluous in the patch?
After solving this (rm -rf asm; ln -s asm-ppc asm), I could build and boot
it just fine on my TiBook IV, thanks Stewart!
BTW, just wondering but would it be possible to adapt the kernel that one
can enable/disable the "HDD Blink led on activity" via sysctl
(/proc/sys/something). I very much like the very but it's annoyingly
bright when watching a movie or something dark.
(The glowing LED when Powerbook is suspended seems to consist of a routine
varying the brightness level, maybe it could also be solved by making it
blink les bright by default).
