Call for report - G5/PPC970 status (was: Re: Found the commit for: 5.3.7 64-bits kernel doesn't boot on G5 Quad [regression])

To narrow down the issue - is that a PCI/PCI-X (7,3 [1]) or PCIe G5 (11,2 [1]) ?
Single, dual or quad ?

Same question to anyone else with a G5 / PPC970 - what is it and does
it boot recent PPC64 Linux kernel ?

Christian from the original report has a quad, like me (so powermac11,2).

There was also a report of a powermac7.3 working in the original discussion,
single or dual unspecified.

So this might be a Quad thing, or a more general 11,2 thing...

Any test I could run that would help you tracking the bug ?
