I seem to have trouble building Alan's 2.4.10-ac11.
First pc_keyb.c is missing the follwoing line:
Once that is fixed, vmlinux builds. But then during make modules we seem
to be missing cache flushing code (according to the error message).
I compared this with Ben's version of agpgart_be.c and the ac version
seems to be missing a lot of ppc specific pieces that are in Ben's tree.

So what is the solution here. I really want a STABLE 2.4.X kernel so that
I can work on testing radeon drivers. I don't want VM trouble (been there
done that). But I do need to get the latest kernel video drivers.
Is there a ppc specific version of the AC tree anyplace, that I should be
grabbing? Or have the stability issues in the VM in the Linus tree been
fixed? I noticed that Linus was already at 2.4.12 and even that needed
Will someone please point me to where I should be grabbing source code
from? If I don't want to be an experimental kernel guinea pig, should I
grab a 2.4.9 kernel and then backport all of the video drivers?
