ppc4xx_find_bridges( ) hangs kernel on Xilinx ML300 (PCI)

The PCI support that is currently included in the Linux kernel tree is
for the V2PDK based OPB -> PCI bridge. It will not work with the EDK
based OPB -> PCI bridge, i.e. you will find exactly what you see.

Please download the EDK reference design for ML300 from
http://www.xilinx.com/ise/embedded/edk_examples.htm (design #6). The
design contains the V2PDK based bridge (including the pcore therefor)
and, thus, the Linux kernel will work fine with that design.

We are currently working on moving to the EDK based bridge and the Linux
kernel tree will be patched once this work is completed.
