in arch/powerpc/oea/pmap.c, there are a bunch of debugging options.

in you kerenl config, define PMAPDEBUG, and then in pmap.c, look for 

unsigned int pmapdebug = 0;

and change that value to 0xffff; to turn on all the debugging tricks.  Try
again with those, and post the output.  It is actually helpful.
