There do not exist patches that will help you with your problem.
I do not know at the moment what exactly goes wrong, but I have a
2.6.16 kernel running on a db1100 without your problems. There do
exist some small problems with the standard 2.6.16 git, but they
are not related to your problem (IMHO).
To help you out a bit I have put a minimal working kernel at
Try the srec file and see what happens. Use the YAMON commands
below, althought I tried your command's too and it booted.
Althought it gave a kernel panic, since it was obviously not able
to mount a root partition. This is because your command (the
start environment variable in YAMON) is not compatible with the
setup I have over here.
YAMON> load tftp://192.168.0.5/vmlinux-2.6.16-minimal.srec
YAMON> go .
If this works for you, you can find at the URL mentioned above
the config file I used to build the kernel and that should
provide you with a starting point to continue exploring the
At that same URL are two small patches that should solve the
small problems with the standard 2.6.16 git I mentioned before.
