I'm thinking the POWERPC linux kernel has been compiled with different options than the one in ARM linux.
If you have a "/proc/config.gz" file, can you pull one from the POWERPC linux and from the ARM linux, then compare the two?
That might help!
P.S: I've "Thanked" you post, because it made me smile. I *love* PowerPC!!
