    If they were _really_ ppc-specific you could just explicitly include
    "asm-ppc/prom.h" (etc) and fix the warnings. Unforunately, asm/adb.h
    also exists for m68k, although I don't think the adb.c in the tree is
    prepared for the m68k-based macs right now. Maybe we just need to put
    those includes inside '#ifdef CONFIG_PPC' or something. It would be
    redundant from the compilers point of view (since it will never look
    at the file) but it should make 'make depend' happier.

    Probably the best way to quiet those up would be to just cast the
    unused variable in the macro to void. For example:
    /* 'a' is not actually used in the following macro */
    #define foo(a,b) \
    do { \
    (void) (a); \
    b++; \
    } while(0)

    This will shut gcc up.
