Subject: Kernel bug in 5.7 for PPC32 on PowerBook G4 - bisected to commit
 697ece7

Hi Christophe,

Although kernel 5.7.0-rc2 appeared to boot cleanly, it failed on my G4 when I 
tried to generate a new kernel. The following BUG message is logged:

This problem was bisected to commit 697ece7 ("powerpc/32s: reorder Linux PTE 
bits to better match Hash PTE bits").

If I had done more rigorous tests earlier, I would have found the bug with more 
time to fix it before release of 5.7, but every other problem I have found 
happened at boot, not when the machine had to swap.

Thanks,

Larry
