Linux 3.0 fails to boot _very_ early on my Powerbook G4. See the
yaboot/OF screenshot:

Linux boots fine.
Does somebody have an idea?

The config can be found here:
It's mostly equivalent to the working 2.6.39 config. I enabled
early OF console, but that didn't help to show better error messages.

The machine is a:

cpu             : 7447A, altivec supported
clock           : 1499.999000MHz
revision        : 1.2 (pvr 8003 0102)
platform        : PowerMac
motherboard     : PowerBook5,6 MacRISC3 Power Macintosh 
detected as     : 287 (PowerBook G4 15")
pmac-generation : NewWorld

Greetings, Michael.
