Thank you! I tried the commit 240d7ecd7f6fa62e074e8a835e620047954f0b28
(powerpc/dma: use the dma-direct allocator for coherent platforms) again.

git clone git:// -b powerpc-dma.6 a

git checkout 240d7ecd7f6fa62e074e8a835e620047954f0b28

I modified the 'dma.c' patch because of the undefined references to
'__dma_nommu_free_coherent' and '__dma_nommu_alloc_coherent':


@@ -163,8 +99,13 @@ static inline void dma_nommu_sync_single(struct
device *dev,

 const struct dma_map_ops dma_nommu_ops = {
+       .alloc                          = dma_direct_alloc,
+       .free                           = dma_direct_free,
        .map_sg                         = dma_nommu_map_sg,
        .unmap_sg                       = dma_nommu_unmap_sg,
        .dma_supported                  = dma_direct_supported,

The X1000 boots and the PASEMI onboard ethernet works! X5000 (P5020
board): U-Boot loads the kernel and the dtb file. Then the kernel starts
but it doesn't find any hard disks (partitions).
