Tried to compile my standard kernel compile a while back, and found the
following things broken (didn't have time to try fixing yet...):

- 53c94 Mac SCSI
- Matroxfb

I also didn't try very hard to compile in face of these problems; there
may be others still.

Sorry I can't provide more info, but maybe this discussion makes ore
people interested in 2.5 status, where I think a number of PPC-related
things need to be seriously looked at, hopefully before it is declared
