I got the 2100/3100 to boot through to mounting the RAM disk. The 2100 didn't
like TurboChannel probing too much (it doesn't have any TC slots :)).
Apply the little fix below to drivers/tc/tc.c to skip TC probing on the
2100/3100. This might be helpful as I'd like to have a unified kernel image
that is able to boot on all machines (if this is possible at all ...).
Now it seems that the kernel isn't able to read my command line arguments,
the last line is
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem).
which should indicate that the kernel didn't get the root=/dev/ram cmd line
argument I gave ...
