Re: Problems with NSLU2/xscale kernel that go back to April, 2008

It's not clear to me that you can only limit yourself to ixp425 or nslu2 files, since there is also some reference to arm/arm files. But perhaps you know better than I.
I guess it would be easier to build April 27 and or 28 and test the images.
April 26 won't build.  Two lint issues.
April 27 builds and run.  0 errors in 144 succesive MD5 computations.
April 28 builds, but won't run unless you add the following line to std.nslu2 (before you build the kernel):
options     KERNEL_BASE_EXT=0xc0000000
The result is 3 errors in 144 successive MD5 computations.

While it is definite that there is a problem with 20080428 (and all later kernels), it is less sure that there isn't a problem with 20080427. I think Andy Ruhl was planning to build this version and test it as well.
