Yes, I think what happened was that when you rewrote the arch/ppc/boot/
stuff, you started with the a version of the file I had written for one
of my platforms which is where my name came to stick in there.
The details are hazy in my memory as to how I came to be the "sole
author" of this code. :) In any case, I think having you attributed as
the author of this stuff is appropriate and I can be removed.
