Pls try to avoid cross-posting your technical message.

To get a workable 2.6.x 8xx kernel running with
ramdisk root filesystem, you could refer to:

And also from this thread, you could get a clear clue
on the 2.6 porting on 8xx.

I tested 2.6 kernel on RPXlite DW from 2.6.7 to
2.6.9-rc2 with ELDK3.0. All worked fine with ramdisk.
If adding the ONE-LINE patch from Pantelis Antoniou
which you could get it on the thread, it could work
right with NFS but still need some fix to make it on

It seems that we leave the right result just one step
but it's most likely the most difficult part, IMHO:-)
