How long do you think this is going to be that way, with 2.6.24 actually
merging those supports at kernel level?

 So this changes break things. I don't think that it's a good idea do it

We discussed this issue and the reason for doing this change asap in
length on the mailing list two weeks ago or so. Please have a look at
the archive for more. You will also find some significant patches
already exploiting the new common tree in order to streamline the code,
and ease maintenance on our side. Few resources, large work, we have to
be efficient, and maintaining two closely related archs sharing bits in
separate code bases is pointless, and a loss of time for the project.
