Well, one thing I've noted is that a good deal of the Motorola support has
made its way out of Mot, through cvs, and into 2.2.8/2.3.0.  This includes
proper ID of every board, configuration of the MPIC, and proper PCI
interrupt routing based on the board type.  A major step forward for Mot
PReP systems.
