Note that powerpc support is still available as a community port in 10.10. It should still be possible for a motivated person to get this working again in some form.

This could be improved, as there is already a device-tree-compiler package on Debian (which means that it should probably also be present on Ubuntu).

This would simplify things, as there are less requirements (for instance, no need to use git, flex and bison).

A second thing is that the git tree presented here is outdated. The new tree seems to reside at ozlabs.

A third improvement is that I have packaged avr_evtd, so it is unnecessary for users to compile their own. This helps keep things simple (as they should be).

A fourth improvement is that Debian already has uboot-mkimage available. This makes the compilation of the kernel even easier.
