Debian/etch will ship with 2.6.18, on all arches. This currently has some
issues on oldworld powermac, something probably minor to fix, but major in
that actually booting does not work.

What we need is someone interested enough in this issue to follow it,
summarize the actual solution, and investigate with upstream how to fix this.
