(4) James Bottomley couldn't boot his ZX2000 (HP ZX1 chipset) from git
yesterday either.
He had to update firmware to 2.31 version because of some changes
in 2.6.16 SAL usage exposed an older SAL bug. Alex Williamson had
dug up the details and I'm blanking on them right now.
But his zx2000 is still not able to boot.

Could be multiple, unrelated problems being reported now.
