The SMC was previously initialised, but I still upgraded to 2.6.14-rc2, 
which includes your patch. It still doesn't work, the buffer descriptor 
must be at a wrong address somehow since the board just hangs now in the 
same routine.

I did manage to decode the message coming to the console with the two 
leds onboard... it begun with "Linux ve", which at least looks like a 
good boot-up message :)
