I hope this will be the appropriate forum for this.
Perhaps you've read this on linux-kernel list too. I have a problem
with booting 2.4.17-rc1 on a RS/6000 (43P-140), when Vortex support is
compiled into the kernel. Andrew Morton helped me in debugging the
He suspects that the problem is around the `EL3WINDOW(0);' statement in
the 3c59x driver. He wrote this:
"My guess would be that something has gone wrong with the PPC emulation
of `outw' to this PCI device's IO space."
I recompiled the kernel with the modifications suggested by him:

The first printk showed the right ioaddress which belonged to the device
(shown by `lspci -v'). The second printk was not executed because the
kernel paniced before it. He wrote it's definitely a platform issue.
Any suggestions are welcome.
