No, the afterburner is a 68040 board. I forgot to tell you that you should
also disable 68060 optimizations, so the only way to get a kernel that runs
on an afterburner is to disable all 68020, 68030, 68040 *and* 68060

There is no patch necessary. One has just to compile it without

Same as above.

The kernel only breaks when compiled with the wrong configuration so I don't
think its a kernel problem at all. It's a problem of the afterburner card.
