Well, the kernel booted fine on all the Newworld Powermacs that I
could get a hand on, which is probably not surprising - they are all a
bit old and hence reasonably well-supported.  Want a list of models?

Building a common modules package for all sub-archs sounds like a very
good thing to do.  Just to get this right: You are probably aware that
in order to achieve this now, you could simply bypass make-kpkg in
debian/rules, like by doing one full build with make-kpkg and then
several kernel-only builds with make or somesuch.  So are you saying
that you would like to wait till this functionality is integrated into
