Hello. I try to boot my cavium board with david's patch. 
It's is not applied yet in linux tree, i got the patch from mailing list.
And the patch is as follow.


This is only very lightly tested, we need more testing before
declaring it the definitive fix.

I think, it works well. But i encounter another problem at free_initmem(). 
The log messages are as follow.

And i just changed free_initmem() functions as follow

diff --git a/arch/mips/mm/init.c b/arch/mips/mm/init.c
index 9b973e0..e246e9b 100644

 }

After that it works well. but i don't know why it works well.

Thanks.
