The linuxppc_2_5 tree is completely obsolete.  You want the
linuxppc-2.5 tree, which is fairly close to Linus' tree.  There are
some 4xx bits in there that I will send to Linus once I am happy with
the way we do things on the 440, plus some bits for some embedded 6xx
platforms that Tom checked in there recently.

The linuxppc_2_4 tree is also pretty much obsolete.  There is now a
linuxppc-2.4 tree descended from Marcelo's linux-2.4 tree, which
should be used for any ongoing 2.4 development (which should
definitely be tapering off now).

Why do you want to work on 2.4.21 when any patch you submit will need
to be against Marcelo's latest version?  There are substantial PPC
changes in Marcelo's 2.4.22-pre2.
