Nice to know :)

What's the plan then, do we still want to keep 40x in the kernel ?

If yes, is it ok to drop the oldies anyway as done in my series 
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/linuxppc-dev/list/?series=172630 ?

(Note that this series will conflict with my series on hugepages on 8xx 
due to the PTE_ATOMIC_UPDATES stuff. I can rebase the 40x modernisation 
series on top of the 8xx hugepages series if it is worth it)
