This does not seem a problem related to the eldk, but a kernel related
issue (I can oly suppose that the message is shown during kernel
booting, as you do not provide a log).

And you missed to say which kernel version you are running. You have to
check in your kernel sources to see what happens.

You should not send this stuff to a public mailing list.
