mpc860 vs. mpc860T

I did a complete search for CONFIG_8xx_CPU6, and
truncated variations, in my mpc8xx-2.2.13 kernel, and
could not find it.  It doesn't show up as a cfg option either.
Even a grep on CONFIG_8xx doesn't show anything
resembling that.  Could it be in there and accessible
in an alternative way?

Ummm... the CONFIG_8xx_CPU6 kernel  configuation  option  (workaround
for  CPU6  Silicon  Errata  (860  Pre  Rev.  C  et  al.)) was already
available with 2.2.13 kernels;  you  may  check  it  RH  bothered  to
include it. If so, just enable it.

Hope that helps,

Lead me not into temptation... I can find it myself.
