You can get Marcelo's 2.4.21-pre6 code with:

   bk clone kb:// linux-2.4

However, the most stable and "full featured" ppc64 kernel
will be 2.4.21-pre4 as found on
(ie, take 2.4.20 release tarball, apply 2.4.21-pre4
patch from and then apply our ppc64 specific

Yes, you will need to build a powerpc64-linux toolchain to
compile the kernel.  Directions also at
