Hm, no fair! I already reported this bug back in 2006, asking for
... but I never got any ;)
By the way, I tested Linus' HEAD today (with your quilt patches, Geert)
on my MVME167, it only needed the above fixed and it booted.
I couldn't compile it with my old cross compiler (gcc version 4.1.3
20080623 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.2-23)), it ICEed somewhere in
The new cross compiler I built after that (gcc version 4.3.2 (Debian
4.3.2-1)) had no problems with it.
Kind regards, Kars.
