These are the right ones, notice they end in x though, not z.

So, what are you really booting ? Did you run ybin and such, did you try the
stuff Benjamin Herrenschmidt suggested to Paul's bug report (#323724) ?
Have a look at : http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=323724
Maybe you could try : set panic_timeout in the yaboot kernel options as
Bastian suggested before though
Also, please write to bug report #323724 in futur, and not to the mailing
