Or read:

You'll want to get the linuxppc_2_4_devel tree, and the MVME5100 support
quite probably needs to be updated to use 'openpic_set_sources' and have
it's OpenPIC_InitSenses table-redone.  arch/ppc/platforms/lopec_setup.c
should hopefully have enough comments to explain what needs to be done
to the MVME5100 files.  Tested patches would be greatly appreciated.
