ok, the problem was that we were modifying .start but not .end so length()
was negative.  see my cvs commit message for more detail.  grant, i'd
appreciate you looking that over, it is untested since i did it on the
aeroplane and i hadn't lugged an a180 with me :-)

this _may_ have fixed it.  richard, could you take out the tulip hack you
put in and let me know whether the 720 works now?

however, there is still at least one nasty bug.  on the c3k i was testing
with earlier today, it would hpmc while starting init.  this might be
cured now the pci resources are being mangled properly -- could have
been to do with init trying to open /dev/console perhaps?  this was an
elf sash init, fwiw.

i'm in toronto until sunday evening with no access to parisc hardware, so
don't check out a version of the tree after the LINUS_240_TEST6_PREMERGE
tag unless you want to play hunt-the-bug.  clearly i'd love it if i
checked my email on monday morning and found cvs checkins which fixed
the bugs, but i'm a dreamer :-)
