There's some stuff that never got submitted upstream to kernel.org
during 2.4 due partially to 2.5 appearing. All upstream devel
moved to 2.5/2.6 and no effort was made to merge stuff from the
linuxppc-2.4 tree to linux-2.4. Oh, and Marcelo didn't want
to take "new stuff" into linux-2.4 at that time either.

There's still rsync://source.mvista.com/linuxppc-2.4 available with
the 405gpr/sycamore support.
