It is, indeed. I had to re-set a number of config options that had been
set properly on 2.6.15-rc5, and there's been changes to the input code
again that break mouseemu's scroll wheel emulation, apparently. Other than
that, it looks good.

One patch related to the sound fix here:

diff --git a/drivers/macintosh/therm_adt746x.c b/drivers/macintosh/therm_adt746x.c
