I don't think this is required, but I tried to enable L2 (512K)
at the end of initppc() now. No effect.

L1 was already turned on by OFW as it seems (I'm not doing it
in locore). I have inserted some debugging output in initppc():

before oea_init(): HID0=0x8090c28c, MSR=0x00000000
after oea_init():  HID0=0x8090c28c, MSR=0x00001032

MMU is enabled, caches are enabled (even L2). Everything looks ok.

Now oea_batinit() got the following:

This maps PCI-I/O and PCI-memory space. Maybe I should also map
ISA-space at 0xfe000000, but there are only four BAT registers.

Anyway, it doesn't help. Still freezes when accessing 0x60001000
(KERNEL_SRs are 6,7).
