Great, many thanks. That will help.
Can you try now to put drivers/video/radeonfb.c from -ben8 into
-ben9 (and then -ben10 if it works) and tell me if that helps ?

The system.map thing might not help (if the crash is random), but
basically, you just need to copy System.map next to vmlinux (in
/boot typically) and edit yaboot.conf to add a line
after the image=... line (and re-run ybin to install the new yaboot.conf)
With this, xmon will know about symbols. Then, you can use the "t"
command in xmon to get a backtrace.
