There are no new features going into kernel 2.4.x. Development has stopped
long time ago. Have a look at the available code and backport it to 2.4 (YMMV).
But you propably want to move to the latest 2.6. The MPC8540 is supported
very well.
If you want to have new features implemented, use the latest 2.6.x tree from
Linus. Don't ride dead horses!
