There is certainly a way to automate this, but my question on whether that sequence would fix the problem was intended to more easily fix a real bug in the driver. I can try to help fix the driver on my free time as a volunteer. Christian, would you be willing to test patches to the driver? That would require some back and forth between us and some patience of yours, as I would be doing it on my spare time, considering I have family and other projects I would like to attend to as well. I don't have a PPC Macbook of my own, but I used to fix Linux drivers on PPC64 for a living not too long ago. Cascardo.
