Try this one; it's a corrected version of debian 2.6.24-1 for parisc
systems:

http://www.parisc-linux.org/~jejb/parisc_debs/linux-image-2.6.24-1-parisc64-smp_2.6.24-5+b1_hppa.deb

It's known to boot correctly on B, A and rp3440 systems, but we don't
have a J system to try it out on.

Unfortunately that doesn't tell us anything other than the start IPI
failed for some reason. One thing to try with the J series is a 32 bit
kernel just in case: they're the only SMP systems that will boot 32
bits, just in case you could try a 32 bit smp kernel.

As Dave Anglin said, it could be a config problem, although when I have
CPUs deconfigured by firmware, they usually don't show up in the
inventory.
