Alex, Christian, et al.

Thanks for your rapid response!

I can certainly make the change PPC-only (#ifdef CONFIG_PPC64...) and I
think
that's the safest way to go right now.  It makes the patch very specific to
Cedar
on PowerPC64, so it doesn't break anything that may have come to depend on
Russell's and Alistair's changes, and my timetable for getting a fix in is
very short.
