Sarge d-i images on AS2100's?

I'm having a bit of a problem booting the Sarge d-i CD images on my
AS2100 4/275.  The kernel appears to hang in drivers/pci/setup-bus.c in
the pci_setup_bridge() function.  As you can see from the messages
below, it stops after printing out the bus number and type of bridge.
After looking at the code, it seems that the next thing should be a
message about the IO window, but that message never arrives.

Has anyone with an AS2100 4/275 been able to boot one of the Sarge d-i
CDs?  The Woody installer (2.2.x) boots just fine on the machine (but of
course I can't install to the DAC960 controller), and I was running
2.6.x for a while on it.  If any 2100 owners who have a little time on
their hands could download an image and try booting it, I'd appreciate
the extra data points.
