This is intended as a reminder that we plan on getting rid of arch/ppc  
this summer.  I'm guessing based on kernel release times that will be  
2.6.27.  That would mean 2.6.26 will be the last kernel to support  

If people have boards that like ported over please let us know and  
work with us to port this over to arch/powerpc.

Here is a list based on arch/ppc/platforms.  Its not intended to be  
complete but a general idea of what's left in arch/ppc.
