How about on an embedded MPC750 or MPC7400? Before joining this
list I discovered Kernel version 2.2.15 on Yellowdog and have been
using that. I have made a dozen or so small mods to the kernel to
get it to run on our boards, and have seen no problems, so far....
There are zillions of references to CONFIG_8xx throughout the source.

	These boards are essentially embedded supercomputers;
	the only devices they have are the drivers I wrote, which
	use memory buffers to/from the host PCI as a 'serial'
	console and a network interface.
