It is on linuxppc_2_4 stable tree.  I didn't mention in previous mail,

It is based on linuxppc_2_4 stable tree (now 2.4.21-rc7), and it is
quite stable on both PPC601 PowerMacs (6/7/8100) and PPC603(e)
Performa.  I think nubus patch doesn't cause any big problem on normal
PowerMac since vmlinux made from the nubus tree works fine on my old
PCI PowerMac (UMAX C500), but not yet checked in great detail.  One
thing I haven't port current linuxppc_2_4 code to NuBus is idle_6xx.S.
NuBus kernel still use old power_save().

Porting of kernel 2.5 doesn't occur yet.  Nobody on linuxppc-nubus
mailing list started yet.  But I just tested 2.5.70 on my old UMAX C500
and confirmed to work on PPC603ev machine today (although valkyriefb.c
is needed to fix a little bit),  So I'll try to port 2.5 to NuBus
PowerMac in some extra time.
