The spinlock deadlock was caused by byte-swapping a length argument then
memcpying a very silly amount of data, thus obliterating certain
spinlocks along with other large swathes of kernel memory.

What's in the main libertas git tree now works on ppc, at least for
basic IPv6 and Legacy IP operation. The rest of it will need more
