Subject[ANNOUNCE] Linux boots on early POWER5 hardware

The following is one of the original boot logs for Linux on a POWER5
microprocessor. Linux was ported to POWER5 at an IBM Lab in Austin
Texas. The port was done with pre-production hardware. As such, we are
not showing BogoMIPS or frequency numbers at this time.
