  2.6.14 seems fine on ppc - there are some ambiguous reports about usb 
problems, but those seem to be about changes in linus' git tree *after* 
2.6.14.  I've been running 2.6.14 on my ibook for 3.5 hours now, it has 
slept both with and without a usb mouse connected, seems fine.  Details 
below (throttled back to low speed).
