What seems to be the problem? FWIW the prtconfs.git repo has two SB1000
entries one of which is davem's, so we should have upstream support for
this at least.
Regarding the sparc kernel, it has recently seen a significant amount of
work esp. on 32-bit support, and in fact a new 32-bit subarch Leon was just
added, so we may actually be in a better situation than in lenny on that
front. The outlook certainly seems to be less gloomy than before.
