Can you elaborate? I don't understand why /sbin/init will hang
because of an incorrect SLB entry, or how that entry gets
initialized from get_paca()->kstack.

Are you still trying to find a better fix for 2.6.24, or do
you intend to have this patch go in for now?

Also, I did not get a patch 4/7 and 5/7. Did you send them to
some other mailing list, or did they get lost on the way?
