The current patch looks mostly fine to me (apart from the trailing
whitespace again).  I'm wondering though whether cyclone.c should go
into arch/ia64/ibm/SOMEWHERE, like we do for the SGI and HP
platform-specific code.  Or, if Cyclone sharable with your x86-based
platforms, perhaps it should even go somewhere in drivers?
