[U-Boot-Users] Backwards compatibility of "arch/powerpc" model in 2.6 kernel

I understand that u-boot now has the facility of booting PPC-Linux kernels
based on the "arch/powerpc" model -- at least for some processors/platforms.

Once u-boot is set up to boot an "arch/powerpc"-based kernel, can the same
bootloader image also boot an older "arch/ppc"-based kernel? Is the
infrastructure available to boot older and newer 2.6 kernels from the same
u-boot image?
