Hi Paul.

Hmm, yeah, the c2k platform uses that bridge too.  I'll see if I can find
someone with one of those handy.

Since nobody seems to have a prmpc280/2800 anymore, it does seem prudent
to remove it.  It would make validation easier for me in that its one less
platform to worry about breaking.  If I don't hear anything in the next
few days, I'll make a patches to remove prpmc280/2800 support.
