I just sent an example patch (ppc: Relocation test patch) that others
can use (or quickly adapt) to test their board using relocation proper.
It'd be great if others could give any feedback on what impact this
patch has on their board.

I agree.  I believe 3.4.5 or 3.4.6 and later should work, but haven't
tested this hypothesis to any great degree.

I can generate a proper patch if the example patch doesn't break things
