Same here on my 5k/260 but it seems to be neither an endianness nor a semaphore
problem.

I haven't nailed it down yet but with some hacks I am able to boot 2.3.99-pre2
on my 5k/133. To my surprise I *can* telnet into this box, hmmm...

On the other hand, a kernel for the /260 compiled without CONFIG_CPU_HAS_LLSB
(i.e. using the R3000 semaphore code) does not work as well.
