The fact this works indicates a subtle memory management
problem elsewhere. I don't know what that is at this
point. This hack is in a piece of generic code that works
properly on all other PowerPC cores, so it isn't going to
ever appear in the public sources.
I suggested this change to a few people hoping the information
would lead them to finding the real problem, not that it
should be perpetuated as a "fix" to make 8xx work.
I don't personally have time to work on this right now,
so anyone using 8xx should be looking for the real
cause and solution, not using this to create products.
