We're still using sh4 in Debian and most of the stuff works fine. There is
one patch by Michael Karcher that fixes a bug in the kprobes code that someone
should pull in as it unbreaks the kernel with kprobes enabled [1].

Yoshinori Sato is still active sporadically and has a kernel tree here
where he collects patches for -next [2].

Otherwise, the kernel works fine.
