I have a more comprehensive set of patches that remove the need for
ugly hard-coded tables on RS/6000 PReP boxes, that I previously
posted to linuxppc-dev.  I'll freshen them up tonight and post them
again.  They provide generic support for the E20, E30, 140, 240, F30,
and F40 and probably a few other ones that we don't know about, if
we're lucky.  The F40 has problems but all the other work fine.
