Please use the redwood5_config to start with( make redwood5_config).
The stb04xxx does not have a ocp ethernet.  The gpio driver will not

video, sound and other drivers you get from IBM use many gpio pins so
having a generic gpio driver make no sense.  If you want to use the gpio
driver then you will need to update some of the ibmstb4.x files and the
