I'm being cautious about this for the time being.  I'd like to have a
generic match mechanism, but I don't want to do something that isn't
easy to recover from if it turns out to be brain dead.  For now, just
add your board name to the explicit match list.

Yes, in the arch/powerpc/configs/52xx/ directory.
