When I get a kernel panic I see:

NIP: 00001FFC XER: 8000FF7F LR: 00000988 REGS: c0e87c90 TRAP: 1000
MSR: 00001000 EE: 0 PR: 0 FP: 0 ME: 1 IR/DR: 00

Call backtrace:

Instruction DUMP:

If the NIP = 00001FFC, then where is that? That is in the middle of
"Trap_1f" according to the

In the call backtrace, how do I know what addresses such as 018a4490 or
300e88a4 fall? only has C000000++?

Please be patient with me. I am still learning. I really need to figure out
what is going on here. I come from the world of 8051 assembly programmed
into ROM. Memory management, task switching, and embedded operating systems
are new to me.
