Hi Dave,

I got 2.6.1 to build, and after disabling PROM console and serial port support,
I got it to boot. 2.6.1 crashed within about 20 minutes of starting

The compile errors were actually warnings in arch/sparc64/kernel and
arch/sparc64/mm which compiles with -Werror plus one include.

I'm going to start on 2.5 kernels from the bottom... Theres a damn lot of them,
so it will take some time.
