good ppc64 kernel source for p615

I just recently acquired a p615 and have been attempting
to get a ppc64 kernel up and running on this box.  I have
built the toolchain as described at ''.
The tooolchain appears to work as I can build and boot
2.4 kernels.  However, 2.6 kernels (pulled from fail to boot.

Yesterday, I was seeing it fail at:

time_init: decrementer frequency = 124.999447 MHz
time_init: processor frequency   = 1000.000000 MHz
cpu 0: Vector: 380 (Data SLB Access) at [c0000000fef9fb00]
    pc: c000000000039498 (.prom_n_addr_cells+0x14/0x6c)
    lr: c00000000041dea0 (.vio_bus_init+0x3c/0xac)
    sp: c0000000fef9fd80
   msr: 9000000000009032
   dar: 70
 dsisr: 200000
  current = 0xc0000000fef6f360
  paca    = 0xc00000000049e000
    pid   = 1, comm = swapper

A fix for this was submitted, and after pulling the fix I
am getting a little further.  However, I am still unable to
boot.  It 'hangs' shortly after this:

[boot]0020 XICS Init
[boot]0021 XICS Done
PID hash table entries: 16 (order 4: 256 bytes)
time_init: decrementer frequency = 124.999928 MHz
time_init: processor frequency   = 1000.000000 MHz

The machine just sits here and I am unable to even enter
the xmon debugger.

FYI - I am just using the default config (make defconfig).
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
