Ask Paulus about the status of them being included.  My understanding
is that he has been working with the appropriate parties (i.e. Linus
and co) on these changes.

If you want something that closely tracks then use
linuxppc_2_4.  A merge of most of the "new" ports from
linuxppc_2_4_devel is planned now that organizational changes
are settling down.
