Basically none.

The point of the I-pipe/powerpc 2.0 series on top of 2.6.22+ is:
1) to introduce the flat interrupt log, and also reduce the cache
footprints of the pipeline.
2) to merge the 32 and 64bit supports into a single patch, which should
put both on par with respect to the maintenance effort (e.g. we may not
release the 32bit side while the 64bit one is lagging behind anymore, so
we now have a pretty good incentive to keep the 64bit side in shape).

The 1.7 series is a backport of the flat interrupt log and cache
footprints optimizations to 2.6.20/32bit, so that people having deployed
the older I-pipe series/Xenomai don't have to upgrade to 2.6.22+ to get
those improvements.

Yes. I have tested 2.6.22-DENX over two Freescale boards, namely mpc52xx
and mpc8548, using this very same setup. Btw, you will need to pick
2.0-01 which landed today in the repo, since I fixed a couple of issues
(one being serious) there.

It should apply to the vanilla tree without too much fuss, but the
reference tree for the I-pipe/powerpc work is the DENX one, AFAIC.
