k_pmac is 2.2, this is somehow obsolete but that doesnt mean you have to
update just because there is a neat 2.4 binary. If it works for you,
stick with it.
Only Bens tree has working firewire and sleep support, video mirroring
should work with 2.4.2 and the normal kernel.org
tree, but I didnt try it.
Bens tree has also the "cache flush avoidance", that should improve the
performace a bit. A normal glibc.rpm build takes normaly 58 minutes on
my G4, Bens kernel is a bit faster: 53 minutes. But I have to verify
I noticed that with 2.4.7-pre3 k_deflt and 2.4.7-pre6 kernel-benh.
