Yes!  Yes!  Success!

I transferred the CONFIG_8xx_CPU6 patches from the
linuxPPC sources into my kernel and that solved my
problems with the old version of the 860T.

You can grab some  of  the  other  8xx  enabled  source  trees  (like
MontaVista's  or  ours - see
and extract the necessary changes (or compare if they _are_ available
in your RH code, but under a different name.

There are only 4 files affected:
