Yes.  We are currently maintaining the Titan GE driver on "Sequoia" only in 
2.6.x.  The GE driver in Sequoia has been renamed to msp85xx_ge.c.  We are in 
the process of generating a patchset to add support for Sequoia 
(MSP8510/MSP8520) in the Linux/MIPS 2.6 tree.

Our most recent Linux 2.6 tree for Sequoia is available on our ftp site 
(ftp.pmc-sierra.com) under /pub/linux/2.6.12/linux-2.6.12-rc3_L002.tar.gz.
