SubjectLinux 2.4.16 Bug (PPC)
Bug still resides in 2.4.16 still, even after the PPC fixes that were
applied to 2.4.16-pre1.

If nobody cares about PPC updates, I guess I should put the box back on
the shelf.

The video driver (plat) is the framebuffer for a few macs, without it,
I cannot do anything.

Any plans to fix this?

// default_vmode = nvram_read_byte(NV_VMODE);
// default_cmode = nvram_read_byte(NV_CMODE);

Commenting the two undefined functions out in drivers/video/platinumfb.c
allows for a successful compile.
It also allows for the video driver to be brought up succesfully.

Now will this bug be fixed in 2.4.17 for PPC or should I just put my PPC
back on the shelf? :)
