We don't distrubute ppc64 as a set of patches; instead, users
are told to bk clone a bitkeeper tree (in ameslab).

Based on Anton's comments about ameslab being almost in sync with
the torvalds/morton trees, I'm thinking that providing you with
a ppc64-arch-only patch that applies cleanly to the akpm kernels
shouldn't be too hard.

Then again, If you don't really want this patch, I don't really
want to hassle with generating it.  I thought it might be nice,
"for the record" to have it on your ftp site ...
