SubjectState of PPC in Sources?
What is the state of Power PC support in Linus' kernels?  What about
in -ac kernels?

I have noticed some recent PPC work in summaries of recent -ac kernels
and wonder how intact it is. Are they merges to keep PPC forks from
drifting too far? Are they merges to make furture back-ports from to PPC forks easier? Are they actually complete in and of
themselves but lagging PPC forks? (What about 405 support? I think I
see evidence of recent 405 activity in 2.4.8-ac4...)

I would love a short descreiption of the shape of this stuff. What
work happens where and how and when it moves elsewhere would be great
to understand.

Thanks a bunch,

-kb, the new-at-this Kent who is working on a 405GP right now, but who
will possibly be moving to a different architecture soon and doesn't
want to be in a PPC-specific ghetto.

P.S. A terse "Use kernel blah-blah." isn't very useful. We have a
working kernel already. I am trying to understand what comes from
where, where it goes, how often, how completely, etc.
