No, not yet. The last kernel that is working on the AmigaOne is a 2.6.16.x
kernel (still arch/ppc). All further kernels (2.6.17 and 2.6.18) that I
compiled with the old platform code for arch/ppc showed a similar
behavior. I hoped that this would only be a side effect of the ppc ->
powerpc transition. I also tried to search through the changelog files
to find an indication for the problem.

Do you have an idea how to debug it?
I guess it would be possible with a JTAG debugger, but the AmigaOne is
a desktop system and I don't know, if the JTAG pins of the CPU are
accessible on the board.
