I'm a bit ppc64-ignorant, but isn't 'pSeries' just a regular
OpenFirmware-containing ppc64 box (like Maple) ?  How about just 9xx/
for all of the ppc64's that have a 9xx in them (Maple), that aren't pmac
(which is a class of its own).

PQ2 is the marketing name for 82xx, lets just call it 82xx.

I don't like the idea of sticking subdirs in classic32/ either, but also
can't think of a better name for the catchall of 7xx and 74xx boards.
