I sure hope so. Here's the patch set for 2.4.x which fixes the NULL_GUID
bug, moves efi.h from include/asm-ia64 to include/linux, and fixes

has been in the IA64 port for a while. This fixes the endianness issues
with the efi_guid_t type and adds the NULL_GUID definition needed to compile
the GPT code.

moves include/asm-ia64/efi.h to include/linux/efi.h similar to the 2.5
patches. This is needed to allow the GPT code to compile on non-IA64
platforms too, necessary for the use of really big disks.

has been the IA64 port for a while. This fixes efi_guid_unparse for

These need to be applied in the above order, as #1 touches efi.h, #2
touches and moves efi.h, and #3 touches it then too. #1 and #3 are already
in the ia64 port tree, but Marcelo and Alan don't have any of these three.
I've compiled this on x86 against BK-current building in GPT with no
