Hi Sven,

I'm presuming that the patches you are applying are similar, or a
superset, of what I used (which is in #287030).  I found that solution
because of following up on #276397 "Kernel won't wrk on XServe G5".

I think that if your current fix for PowerMac7,3 has the patch below
added then perhaps the XServe problem will go away (I constructed it
by hand, so it might not apply cleanly but you get the idea). I don't
have an XServe, and I've not tested this, but it's a thought :-)
