Hi Ben,

I narrowed it down to 2.6.28-git2(Boots) while 2.6.28-git4(fails to boot).
I could not boot test 2.6.28-git3 as i ran into kernel compilation issues.

Here is the error message i got when i tried compiling 2.6.28-git3.

LD vmlinux.o
ld: dynreloc miscount for kernel/built-in.o, section .opd
ld: can not edit opd Bad value

I think the above one was some tool chain related issue.

I don't know how to git bisect using these two releases (2.6.28-git2/2.6.28-git4).
I guess that is not possible since there are no commit tags for these releases.
But i could be wrong.

Is there anything else that i could try out to find a solution for this ?
The machine in question is a Power Mac G5 running Ubuntu Hardy with a
PPC970, altivec supported CPU(2).

For the record i can still recreate this issue with 2.6.29-rc8-git6.

Thanks
-Sachin
