Genius. That patch appears to work for me as well.

However, I'm still not able to debug via gdb/BDI2000.
I'm getting the ol' "MMU: address translation for 0xc----- failed".
I'm using the same BDI config file that works fine for debugging
a 2.4.26 kernel on the same hardware, I've verified that I have
CONFIG_BDI_SWITCH=y etc. Is this another known issue with 2.6
on 8xx platforms? Has anyone had success debugging via BDI2000 on an 8xx
If so, could you share your config file or hints as to why it should behave
differently (i.e. not work) with a 2.6 kernel? Thanks.
