I was wondering if anyone has gotten 2.6.14 to run on an Au1550. I had
2.6.14-rc2 mostly working (except for jffs2 writes) and was previously
using 2.6.13 (had a jffs2 sync problem on reboot) and 2.6.11 (seems

I tried out a linux-mips-git tree from this afternoon
(6e47ab8b0ad1ca7bddbc086e2ce7736632c18df4). 2.6.14 is panicing right
after the 'Freeing unused kernel memory' with:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

This is without support for the PCI device. With support for the PCI
device it fails in a similar path, but from pci_scan_single_device.

Any ideas what might be going on? Is anyone working with 2.6.14 with
the Au1550 (or Au1xxx) processors?
