Hi Dave,

I don't quite understand this question - can you be more precise about
what you want?  What is the "powerpc branch in ELDK Linux" meant to be?
We keep our linux-2.6-denx repo[1] pretty close to mainline Linux so
everything in mainline will show up there soon also.

Maybe you simply want to use a newer Linux kernel with ELDK, which is -
to be honest - the norm rather than the exception.  Usually people will
use the ELDK provided kernel only for very early testing before moving
on to current development versions.  Feel free to use our git repo for
this purpose.

I'm not even sure we need to port anything ;)
