I'm not sure about the non-Mac parts of the code, but keep in mind that
the PowerMac 7500, and I think the 7200 (not sure about the 7300...) use
a PPC 601.  I haven't studied the LinuxPPC arch to see how that's
organized or how much overlap there is between the pmac-specific and the
non-pmac code, so I can't say much more than that.
