Is this happening with -HEAD? If it was working before r209243, can
you update to r209243 apply the last patch I sent and see if the issue
is caused by the tlb.c changes.
But from the panic, it looks likely that this is caused by a later
change. Sorry for the trouble, if the tlb.c changes caused this too,
I will revert it until I have a way of testing on AR71xx boards too.
