I successfully applied the patches
to the kernel
linux-2.2.13.tgz from
using the following procedure:

cd linux-2.2.13; patch -p1 [--dry-run] < patch-2.2.13-mpc8xx.diff.gz
cd linux-2.2.13; patch -p1 < patch-2.2.13-mpc8xx.diff.gz

cd linux-2.2.13; patch -p1 [--dry-run] < patch-2.2.13-mpc8xx-damm.diff
cd linux-2.2.13; patch -p1  < patch-2.2.13-mpc8xx-damm.diff
-modify the main Makefile: ARCH := ppc, CROSS_COMPILE = powerpc-linux-
-make config, make dep, make zImage

I could not run it on my FADS board because I have only 4 MBytes memory. I am
using this kernel on a custom board with 16 MBytes memory. I had to do a few
modifications for that.

Is there ? Where is the "low-memory patch" that make the kernel 2.2.13 runable
with only 4
Mbytes memory ?
