not really sure this will help you, but I had similar problem (spurious
hangs during boot/insmod on 823 and 850 MPCs). The ppc mm for 8xx in 2.4
repository is broken, use that in 2.4-devel that works fine. AFA net
devices are concerned check that rx start is done in open and not in init
since linux doesn't like packets before a device is opened.
