I have finished the work of transmitting sparc64 ROM parameters to kinit 
via the file /arch.cmd in rootfs.  The result is pretty nice, as it

collect architecture-specific options at initialization time.

I have also merged my tree with v2.6.17-rc5, although it was a 
completely orthogonal merge set.

The following issues are still outstanding, as far as I know; I will try 
to get to them in a timely manner:

  b. nfsaddrs= (unlike ip=) shouldn't configure networking unless NFS is
     specified as the root filesystem.

  c. s390/s390x merge.  (Again, if someone could get me some hand holding
     in setting up a standard Linux on Hercules, that would be really
