MVME5100: kernel hangs in dcache_init

Hi everyone,

  I'm trying to run Debian linux 2.2.18 on a MVME5100 board. I've done some
 - changed addresses of UART registers in arch/ppc/boot/ns16550.h
 - changed BAT settings in arch/ppc/mm/init.c to map IO region 0xf0000000 to
and some other things.
Now the kernel hangs in the dcache_init routine in init/main.c and it seems
to me that the problem is related to memory management, but I'm not sure.
If I comment out the the routine calls from dcache_init to check_bugs(), the
kernel go on a little showing me some infos about PCI devices.

Anyone of you can help me ?

Thanks in advance.
