I think a portion of the problem, is that the full patches don't live at
home yet, which had me patching before I found all the other patches.  I
noticed only 1.0..1.2 in the changelog, which didn't exist in other
places.  The PPC linux kernel is basically the same.

I have now seen the light :-)

Ok, cdemo tests fail.  What are the requirements from admin for
modification to cdemo if needed?  Sorry I have to ask, sometimes people
have various reasons for not allowing specific modifications.
