We have linux-2.4.14-rc3 running on all AMCC eval boards (see http://www.denx.de). But the kernel supported by RTAI/Fusion, linuxppc-2.6.10rc3, does not boot on Ebony. The main problem is the missing support for U-Boot but there might be others. And it's simply not worth the effort to port it, I think.
Open question: to your opinion, is 2.6 on low-end embedded hw doomed "by design" and why, or do you think that part of the reluctance to move to 2.6 is mostly explained because 2.4 is just fine and up to the task, IOW it's kind of a "don't fix if it ain't broken" perception?
