I'm working on it, but I was slowed down by 2 things:
1) it took me a while to get CTC working on 2.4.x because I misread the `chandev` stuff.
   It works now. Add 'chandev=ctc0,0xA000,0xA001,0,0,0' to your parmline, where A00[01] is the address
   of your CTC or CTCI connection
2) there's a bug in the Hercules 3390 ECKD DASD support which doesn't get hit by 2.2.x,
   but which does get hit by 2.4.x at dasdfmt time.
3) It's easiest to IPL from a 3505 RDR containing kernel, parms, initrd
   insmod and ifconfig ctc0
4) At the moment I'm installing on FBA, which seems to work...

more later
