it crashes in sparse_early_usemaps_alloc_pgdat_section(). Since there is
already a sparse_init() in arch_mem_setup() I removed it from ip27-memory.c.
With this booting made more progress but I get an unaligned access in
kernel_init_free_pages().

My time is a little bit limited today to dig deeper, but testing patches
is easy.

Thomas.
