   I think we should commit this hack, along with all the other hacks we have
   lying about that are required to get X working.  Note them in doc/HACKS or
   whatever, but not having X is annoying.  (Wasn't the other one an additional
   syncicache that needed to be added somewhere?  Commit that one too.)

i agree, but please make them #ifdef __powerpc__ only.
