Hmmm But doesn't that suggest there is CONFIG_PPC_SERVER? Ick!
Not to ask a stupid question, but what is this CONFIG_ALL_PPC replacement trying
CONFIG_PPC_PREP seems to imply the PREP standard for all it's warts
CONFIG_PPC_CHRP same thing... tho to me a PMAC and a CHRP box are well, sorta
the same thing
I hate to advocate this but if CONFIG_ALL_PPC isn't really being "truthful" as
far as what it is, then perhaps testing for something like CONFIG_PPC_PREP,
CONFIG_PPC_CHRP etc maybe isn't a bad idea. Code bloat true and certainly a
little harder on the eyes, but it is certainly alot more clear as far as the
expectations the affected portion of code might have.
