Yes, thatīs the problem I have too. Currently I have to start und shutdown my
HP-box every time I built a new kernel. Cross-compiling could speed up the
programming-phase drastically. Is anybody currently working on that issue ?
The bootloader already has some code to load ELF-images too.

This is an older kernel-image. The newest one has a line showing "cpu : PAyxxx"
and info about the BTLB. I think the message "level 0" is wrong here too, but
that should already be fixed in the cvs.
