The addition of treeboot-walnut.c breaks compilation of Linux-2.6 for 
the lite5200 using the ppc_6xx toolchain of the ELDK 4.1:

It looks like the ppc_6xx toolchain does not know the opcode above. I 
wonder why files for other PowerPC sub-archs like 4xx are compiled with 
the wrong compiler. Have I missed something?

And the WARNING above on "Section mismatch" looks strange as well (still 
present in 2.6.23-rc7).

Thanks for help.
