Stuck in booting 2.6.10-ac11 on Memec Design FF1152...

Hi Finn!

According to a mail contact we had with the CEO of Mind "this never 
happened" even though several news flashes states that this is 
accomplished. See Andreis mail about the Montavista one. What matters 
however is the powerpc405 which sits at the core of both the Xilinx 
ML300 and Memec FF1152 board and since these are the same (minus a few 
bugs on the Memec side), so is the kernel.

I've resolved the issues I had in my earlier mail and now has an almost 
stock kernel 2.6.11-rc4 running @400Mhz. As you will see, the big 
challenge is about putting together a good initrd to get a useful system. :)

I'm attaching my .config, but be aware that I'm using a fairly 
minimalistic system with debugging only via XMD and printouts on the 
serial port so you might want to take a good look at it before you 
compile. Change the values in 
arch/ppc/platform/4xx/xparameters/xparameters.h to reflect your boards' 
device addresses and comment out devices you do not use.

Hopefully, there will be some more general support for the Xilinx 
Virtex-II Pro++ chips in the kernel, we just need to come up with a good 
plan for it.
