Thanks for taking the time to do this work. As well as thanks to Robert
Milan for having restarted work on cell support in debian.

So, this is still a generic kernel, which will boot on powermac G5, and
other powerpc 64 hardware, right ?
I will look over the config on monday afternoon, and try to coordinate
the tests on various hardware, as well as do some early d-i work and
generate debain-installer images for testing.
BTW, you mentioned on irc that there where a couple patches that you
would like to be included in the debian kernel, when you provide those,
could you please include in the bug report also a quick rationale for
each of them, as well as some information on mainlain-ing status of
them, such as to have the best chance to convince our kernel team to
have them included.
Oh, and please bounce/forward this email to the debian-powerpc mailing
list, as my post will not reach it.
