I am not sure of the details, but I had the exact same problem, I
used "git bisect" to isolate it.
and it bisected down to the Zlib patch I backed that out and I was
able to go from 184.108.40.206. all the way to 2.6.18-rc2.
I beleive there is another problem of some kind that effects Xilinx
ppc's that went in and got fixed between 220.127.116.11 and 2.6.18-rcx.
Though my symptoms were different for that one, and I was never able
to isolate it because even though I could not get 2.6.17 to work,
The stuff in the 2.6 git tree did.
Have you tried 2.6.18.x to see if your stuff works with it ?
