I've just been able to start 2.6.11 from my own compilation on IP32.

Can I have some help about following problems/comments ?

1/ It was really difficult because kernel was falling in breakpoint call (BUG macro) in free_bootmem_core. => I've successfully try to comment this BUG macro in free_bootmem_core (bootmem.c) Of course, I'm thinking this is really sad... but I've a really poor knowledge in kernel development...
may someone can explain how to solve such issue in a better way ?
This breakpoint was boring me since 2.6.10...

2/ There's also a problem with ip32-memory.c, which isn't able to detect 64MB dimm. Yet, not enough knowledge for processing bankctl (prom_meminit) in the nice way for detecting 64MB dimms... (All memory slots are used on my O2: slots 1 to 6 with 32MB dimms and slots 7 & 8 with 64MB dimms) .

Best regards
