I am not to sure.  It is the same kernel Ubuntu stock kernel from installation (2.6.15-23-powerpc).  I have taken the config from that kernel and made my own with the latests stable vanilla kernel but it did not work to well.

I am going to try to compile it again tonight.  I do think the stock kernel has the windfarm as a module as most of the stock kernel is compiled with modules all around.
