Well, I hack a bit my patch to make it compile and the kernel already booted.
Though it hangs when loading the SATA driver.
I have no idea why atm.
Problems with IRQs?
Probably, as when unplugging the SATA drive, the boot goes further
but then hang at USB detection (both are handlign IRQs a lot i guess).
Would be interesting if someone could test on other board than just mine.
As I pointed out in my previous mail, the IRQ handling is not yet correct for powerpc. Try to correct his first.
The 2.6.19 having been released out, and working much better on my card
than the vanilla 2.6.18 used to be, I'm now more kind to adapt my patch to
this latest kernel.

However the IRQ handling API seem to have changed a lot
and i was wondering if some work on porting Adeos
(x86/ppc, not yet powerpc of course) patches already have been started
by someone here ?

I don't see that PPC is converted to genirq, that new API. And I'm not
sure (while not being a PPC expert) if it ever will be, specifically as
PowerPC is already on genirq and should obsolete PPC one day, right?

No, or at least partially wrong. I have to check what the new, fully implemented genirq does. But I realized, that the common IRQ structure is used now (resulting in some name changes, w.g. ->handler ->chip). Likely, PPC and PowerPC already use the new genirq.

Anyway, there is an unreleased work-in-progress patch for x86 over -rc6
by Philippe. I recently had the chance to test it and hack a bit on the
SMP IO-APIC part. It seems to work fine under UP, but SMP had some
issues that are identified, but still need to be addressed - thanks to
genirq, now in a widely arch-independent way.

Philippe, I know you are very busy, but shouldn't we make a pre-release
available already, also to discuss further how to deal best with genirq
on other platforms beyond x86?
