Hi Steve,

xconfig was broken for me the last time I did some powerpc work as
well.  If you want to be really safe, use "make config".

BTW, I hope that by the end of next week, I'll be able to send Ralf the
latest patches for the ev96100. It's running pretty well now with the
scache enabled, but I found 96100 misconfiguration problems in the sdram
decoders/subdecoders. The DEC tulip (with one small patch), serial.c
(small patch again) also run fine, as well as the 96100 internal
10/100Mbps controllers.
