- show_trace()/show_stack() etc need to be implemented for parisc. right
now they are just empty stubs. i have some initial versions of these
that are probably not quite correct. will look into it some more.
- our PDC early debug console hacks need to be cleaned up somehow
- pci serial is broken still in 2.5.41, may be fixed in 2.5.42
- drivers/pci/setup-bus.c has a hppa-specific #ifdef right now to
  prevent pci reinit from hpmc'ing the machine. this probably needs to
  go upstream

email's good.... :-) perhaps keep the list in cvs (so people can
add/remove items) and you can post it periodically.
