2.4.8 is just dandy on most (6xx/7xx/74xx) PPCs. The default config won't
compile because of one of the IDE options (CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SL82C105), but
aside from that, it's good.

2.4.8 vs the PPC tree at the time was very close. Hopefully 2.4.10 will be
as well.

4xx support hasn't worked in the 'stable' trees for a while. It's finally
being caught up in the '2_4_devel' tree. See
