Thanks, Heiko: this patch, or the revert before it, gets my PowerMac G5
working with 2.6.28-rc1. I had the same console keyboard issue as Walt
(though USB not PS/2 here), and also the Broadcom tg3 appeared not to
be initializing (to judge by bootup messages - but without a keyboard
I didn't investigate, and forgot to try pinging from elsewhere).
Either of your patches fix both issues (but I've not reviewed them
or tried them on other machines which were having no problem).
