Hi Markus,

I think I understood what you mean. I recompiled the kernel adding the
debug symbols, stripped it and booted with it.
There I got those numbers (using the 32bit version):

Exception PC: 0x8021c9fc, Exception RA: 0x804ddc6c
gpda 0x81060e08, _regs 0x81061008
arg: 81070000 0 80503518 1
tmp: 81070000 1000 8051a868 fff8054f ffffffff 81412ef4 a13fab68 7
sve: 81070000 4083ae51 0 4608a976 0 4085cc91 0 3ed97758

then run gdb and issue those commands:

(gdb) info symbol 0x8021c9fc
__bzero + 56 in section .text
(gdb) info symbol 0x804ddc6c
init_bootmem_core + 196 in section .init.text
(gdb) list *0x804ddc6c
0x804ddc6c is in init_bootmem_core (mm/bootmem.c:107).

103             mapsize = get_mapsize(bdata);
104             memset(bdata->node_bootmem_map, 0xff, mapsize);
106             return mapsize;
107     }

So, it this what you requested?

>From what I understand the problem may be that bdata->node_bootmem_map
maybe incorrectly initialised for this machine.
