Which version of kernel are you using?  The new sysace driver was
merged into 2.6.22

Don't use EDK to build you're kernel.  It's too fragile and you need
to use the *exact* version of kernel that EDK expects.  You're better
off to manually copy the xparams file from the generated BSP.  (ie.
Don't let EDK know where your real kernel source tree is)
