Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

(apologies for what my mail gateway may decide to do with the formatting of 
this message)

This problem looks similar to an issue raised on this list earlier in the year:

At the time I was having a similar issue with a Broadcom MIPS32 that I was 
working on (which also has a BCM3302 core).  My fix is outlined in this post:

To summarize, the kernel was trying to map memory into virtual addresses that 
the chip was using for internal address space.  I'm not sure that you are 
having the same problem, but I figured I should mention this since the problem 
looks similar.
