Wow that was great I got a lot further once I copied the 2.5 kernel uart.c file across.

I had to comment out both referances to ret_from_intercept in the head_8xx.S file I cannot see what is going on there.  I then got to this:
  LD      init/built-in.o
  LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
arch/ppc/kernel/built-in.o: In function `DoSyscall':
arch/ppc/kernel/entry.S(.data+0x350): undefined reference to `sys_pciconfig_iobase'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

I have not more time to spend on this and track down the PCI issues.
I am using a miniumal config file I will be happy to send to any body who is interested.

I discovered that the UART driver in arch/ppc/8xx_io/ has not been ported to the 2.6 kernel otherwise I had no problems.  I have not had time to get back to the 2.6 porting effort and update the uart.c file.  If ther eis another one out there I could try it out but that is where I left my effort.  Otherwise I would guess you may not have too many more problems but I have not been able to spend much time on this.

The linuxppc-2.5 tree already has most of this done (as it did as of
2.6.1 or 2.6.2, I haven't re-checked the drivers).  However, head_8xx.S
still needs some updates for VM/exception changes.
