His problem is different Ben, it's finding the Qlogic vs. Symbios
cards in a different order in 2.6.0

Ie. in one the qlogic's get found first, in the other the symbios
cards are found first.

Something in the 2.6.x scsi makefile changes are causing this
to happen.

I don't think so :)  Especially since he tried this with egcs64
on 2.4.x which should work.

I think they just do the SMP boot sequence or cpu numbering different
in the OBP found on his box.
