Yes, we should add this step by step.

The exception frame of the PowerPC is currently not in the cpukit.  I think a 
CPU port specific name makes only sense if the CPU port defines a common type, e.g.


   typedef struct {
   } CPU_Exception_frame;

   typedef CPU_Exception_frame rtems_exception_frame;
