    I had the same problem, I did get it built by skipping some patches for architectures I wasn't needing, but then the kernel when booted would crash about 8 out of 10 times, and when it did boot, only about 2 out of 5 times would I get a gdb prompt from another machine. Then when I had a gdb prompt, the first command I tried locked up the box.

    I also tried versions 2.6.13 and a couple others (I forget which), the patches all had some failures, you may have guessed by this time I have punted...
