Thank you Joe. For the first time in a couple of months the machine just booted.
Note that I didn't easily find CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED in make
menuconfig so I only disabled CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2 which was
enough to allow it to boot.
I took a quick look at the PPC install guide and frankly I don't see
instructions there to disable this option, although I have done this
on other machines. Is it just me or are the instructions actually not
in the kernel config section. If they are truly missing then it would
be great if someone could update that.
Anyway, it seems completely unreasonable for me, after all this, to
just say thanks for the help. It doesn't begin to represent how
appreciative I am of the time you spent looking into this with me. I
really am indebted.
