That is OK, I had the same problem with ia64 in 2.4.  Users had to
apply the ia64 patches from David Mosberger first, then kdb for ia64.

Submit kdb for ppc64 patches against the current ppc64 tree, which I
guess is what your recent patch is.  Tell users that they have to apply
the general ppc64 patches first, before applying kdb for ppc64.

Alternatively you can maintain kdb for ppc64 directly in the ppc64
tree, then I do not have to get involved.
