ppc (32-bit versions) and ppc64 are deprecated trees scheduled to be
removed from the Linux kernel.

powerpc is the new preferred tree and is trying to consolidate ppc and
ppc64.  For Xilinx ppc405 though, I think the ppc tree is still
recommended, but that will probably be changing soon (this summer)?
