Staying late pays...

Thanks to simple, yet great advice by Andrew Turner concerning calls to openfirmware and utilizing *OF_buf, it seems that eventually I came to the point where the kernel panics due to the lack of PIC!:


 atomic_subtract_16(0)... panic: no PIC detected

KDB: enter: panic
[thread pid 0 tid 100000 ]
Stopped at 0x29587c: addi r0, r0, 0x0


As you can see, the KDB by itself stops at this point, no crash at last:)

All thanks to the AT and the fact that I'm studying hard for the exam (Quantum Mechanics for PhD students....)

Oh, and it works with the decr_init() in the cpu_startup(). We have all at the momment.
