SubjectRe: Sparc: Kernel 2.6.13 to 2.6.15-rc2 bug when running X11

Got today a mail from Mr Miller with the subject "Need for VM_INCOMPLETE
on I/O mappings" and a patch made by Mr Dickins. Did apply it to my
2.6.15-rc5 and recompiled the whole kernel and all the drivers.

Sadly this didn't affect the problem I have when starting X. The
Xorg.0.log looks still the same as before and I do have the '_' cursor
in the right left corner of the screen.
The only error in dmesg output is the following:

kernel BUG at arch/sparc64/mm/generic.c:77!

I have to say I don't have much knowledge about the kernel code, but in
arch/sparc64/mm/generic.c it looks for me that no matter what if
io_remap_pte_range() is called it will result in a bug output, is this
supposed to happen? Looking at arch/sparc/mm/generic.c I can't find any
similar functionality.
