You can simply take the patch for slugimage I've posted, and then
create an image with APEX and the 2.6.15 kernel from Debian and the
initramfs that has the ixp400 module in it.

Download the .zip file from slug-firmware.net, unpack the ...sda...
file (slugimage -u -i *.bin), then apply the patch to slugimage and
create a new image with
  slugimage -L apex -k vmlinux -r ramdisk -p -o new.bin
or something like that.

If you give me a copy of your new APEX, I can prepare such an image
for you. ;-)

I think we just need console=ttyS0,115200 noirqdebug, and then root=
will come from the environment if it's set.
