[patch] Paul's rsync kernel compile fix

I've been compiling Paul's rsync kernel on my PowerBook G3 and I've
prepared a patch that blocks out some undeclared (and reference)
variable initializations in linux/arch/ppc/kernel/pmac_setup.c.  A quick
look at the other ????_setup.c (prep, chrp, apus) shows this might also
be useful there, but I didn't run through the compiles to check.

Has everyone else had the same problem compiling these kernels?  

This is the first time I've dug around in "kernel" kernel stuff,
and I think I'm clear on why these variables really don't mean
anything, but I could always be wrong.  :)
