Booting Imac G5

I have a new Imac G5 and I made Linux boot on it. Here's a patch
proposal to get the Sungem ethernet device, the firewire and the IDE
There still are major issues:
- serial ATA freezes during disc probe
- the RTC isn't recongnized
- of course, there is no power / fan management.
My patch is a very minimal one which made me able to boot from CDROM and
firewire disk drive, that's a start ;-)
Note that this patch was originally done against the gentoo version of
linux-2.6.8 but applies well against kernel.org 2.6.9.
I'll try to take a look and solve the SATA issue during this week-end.
