Hi,

extended attributes (and thus acls) do not appear to be supported on
powerpc, as far as i can tell this is because the acl-xattr patches do
not add the syscall and unistd.h defines for the powerpc arch (only
i386 and ia64).  is there any more to it then that? and if not how
difficult is it to do so?  (it looks trivial, but a kernel hacker i am
not...) 

btw, somewhat related but i noticed that the -misc patch adds the
syscall defines to ia64's unistd.h, but the -acl-extattr patch adds it
to i386's any reason for this inconsistency? or a bug in the patch
generation scripts?
