All 6 patches look great to me.  Thanks Stephen.

I've been trying to think about how to ease the merging of
all of this stuff since it touches a bunch of platforms.

I'm happy to take care of all of this stuff in my sparc-2.6.22 GIT
tree at:


which I just rebased, if the PPC folks are fine with this.

If agreed, please just send over the PPC driver et al. patches from
the powerpc tree (ie. the get_property() renaming bits) and I'll suck
them into my sparc-2.6.22 tree.

If not agreed, we do have to come up with some kind of merge plan :-)
