What are talking about? Adirondack, IBM's reference board for 750CXe built for
them by SBS, has been supported (rock solid) in 2_4_devel since last summer. (I
know firsthand as I wrote all firmware and Linux code for the Adirondack and
significantly participated in the hardware design.) Also the EV-64260A I had at
SBS on which I did my first GT-64260 work had a 750CXe CPU module (SBS was
fully committed to 750CXe or 750FX for all designs by then) and ran fine.

I'm very very glad that 2_4_devel doesn't use the bd_info crap and uses bi_recs
instead. If PPCBoot can't handle that, it's PPCBoot's problem. There is more to
the world than PPCBoot. StarMON rules!

Ahh, JTAG Heisenberg debuggers. Another thing I can't stand. Real programmers
don't need no stinking JTAG debuggers. StarMON's debug capabilities are better
than any JTAG debugger and don't have the Heisenberg effects of the latter.
