There is no mention of the Macintosh systems based on the PowerPC

status? Whatever that status is, we should document it in both the
main page and the model support pages.
I have the hardware, I have a pretty good idea what's missing, I just
need to get around to do some hacking.
So, right now things simply don't work. The kernel dies when turning
address translation on again, as far as I can tell that's because
we're running in bridge mode while the TLB modification instructions
only do anything in 64bit mode. At least IBM's manual says so.
