Anybody with 2.5.xx running? I need the very latest code
to run on my Mac Cube.

Linus's BitKeeper tree stops compiling when it hits the
ppc signal code, with some complaint about a lock. With
that fixed, the build stops in the Mac IDE code with a
complaint about something missing from a struct.

So I gave up on that and got the linuxppc-2.5 BitKeeper
tree instead. Compiling fails for several things, all of
which I reluctantly disable: ieee1394, Mac serial ports,
the OpenFirmware framebuffer... and I even fixed an
include for FASTCALL in include/linux/workqueue.h before
getting stopped with a link error that appears to be
video-related. Any fix? I need the aty128fb driver.
