Do you or anyone else have a clue why i cant find anything like this

    bootmap_size = init_bootmem(start_pfn, mem_size >> PAGE_SHIFT);

    /* Free the entire available memory after the _end symbol.  */
    free_start += bootmap_size;
    free_bootmem(free_start, free_end-free_start);

in the arch/mips/sgi/kernel/ directory ? Could it be that this structure
is new and has never been implemented for the IP22 ?

Yep - Thats it - In 2.3.21 this init_bootmem thing doesnt exists - And though
dec hasnt got it - In 2.3.99pre3 the dec has it - But not the sgi *grrrrr*
