 Good -- I was worrying if the code is able to free areas mared as "ROM
data".

 It looks consistent with what was reported previously -- good. 

 Thanks for the report.  From your other report I see the system works
with debugging code enabled as well.  It's consistent with last Florian's,
too.  Therefore I'm considering the previous Florian's failure report an
accident. 

 I have no idea why swap doesn't work -- I'm actually running NFS-rooted
and unless I twiddle with the NBD thingy, I will not be able to test swap
anytime soon.

 The double output looks like a problem with printk.  Ralf, I recall you
made a few changes related to printk on SGI recently -- could you please
look into it?
