This may be totally irrelevant, but I thought I would mention it just in
case it is useful.  At one point, I had to chase down a bug due to the
zero-page getting written to.  That bug was in early 405 kernels and was
due to a documentation defect in the 405GP documentation for the ZPR
register.  You might want to take a look and make sure that your
zero-page is still all zeroes.
