[U-Boot-Users] Problems with MPC8xx I2C (RTC)

Hi there,

I am using u-boot-0.3.0, linuxppc-2.4.20 and a DS1338 I2C RTC with 
MPC8xx CPM I2C (CONFIG_HARD_I2C and i2c-algo-8xx).

To avoid the discribed I2C edge condition I changed u-boot form HARD 
to SOFT_I2C. Now when booting linux I get:

i2c-core.o: i2c core module
i2c-dev.o: i2c /dev entries driver module
i2c-algo-8xx.o: i2c mpc8xx algorithm module version 2.6.1 (20010830)
i2c-rpx.o: i2c RPX Lite module
i2c-dev.o: Registered 'rpx' as minor 0
Machine check in kernel mode.

Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!

Backtrace tells me

Did that happen to anyone else?

Do I actually need the I2C_UCODE_PATCH for something?
