Well.  4.1 ships w/ BootX (and a recent kernel then, yes? 2.1.125?).  Goto (I think that's it) and see howto checkout
the kernel source there.  It's the most current for ppc.

Not needed..  R5 is nice tho <g>.

There are a few "problem" right now.  The current USB dev is being done on
Linus' USB stack.  OHCI (what's in most non-intel chipset based computers)
doesn't work.  OHCI is the main controller.  There is some hope tho.
linux-usb at is the current list. has the current USB-ohci work and links to
the other OHCI driver for Linus' stack (merging soon).
