Sure, attached (as a .tar.gz).  For 32-bit pmac, you currently have to
disable CONFIG_PREP and (I believe) the TAU options.  For the 64-bit
configs I basically just used the defconfigs in arch/ppc64/configs.

That's probably either the pci quirk that got added to do USB host
controller handoff unconditionally on all platforms, and which touches
the device without doing pci_enable_device or checking whether MMIO is
enabled.  A fix has gone into Linus' tree for that.

There was also a bug added to the adbhid.c driver which would cause an
oops when you pressed a key if you had an ADB keyboard (which
powerbooks do).  That's also fixed in Linus' tree.

Thanks, I'll put that in.
