    sys/powerpc/powermac uninorth.c 
  Log:
  - allow a device hint to disable probing a slot on a Uninorth PCI bus.
    e.g. at the loader:
  
          set hint.pcib.1.skipslot=26
  
    This allows undocumented and problematic hardware on some systems
    to be ignored, for instance, the USB keyboard/mouse that shows up
    on a 12" albook that doesn't exist nor do anything other than eat up
    the syscons keyboard. Another one is the unused USB cell in the old
    366MHz iBook that locks up the machine when probed.
  
    In a way this is temporary, since there are better fixes for the
    above problems, but will be useful in the meantime by allowing
    a keyboard to be used to help debug said fixes :)
  
  - while here remove some trailing white space
