Hi Kyle,

Do you by any chance happen to have RAM at and around address
0x0badc0de ? Otherwise I don't see how PXA/IXP could possible work,
for the reasons Richard already gave.
(see also http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/S/schroedinbug.html ;-)

(BTW, I recognize you've contributed significantly to the PXA
implementation I'm relying on and I'd like to thank you for that).
