Well, whichever ChangeSet is the merge of someplace:/.../linux_2_4 into
someplace:/.../linuxppc_2_4 is the merge into linuxppc_2_4.

Well, ChangeSet 1.900 just happens to be after, but I don't recall the
exact changeset of the 2.4.18 merge.  As for the other question, I
forget the exact command (ask on the bk users list) bk each ChangeSet
has a unique key with it, that does not change, so you can later find
things based on the key.
