You need the e500 Core UM for these and all CPU registers. These
regs are the exception save/restore registers. SRR0 is the address
of the instruction that faulted and SRR1 is the MSR when the fault
Are you able to dump the TLBs out with the debugger you have? If so
that would be useful.

Yeah. You'll have to get it from Freescale/Metrowerks. If you
download the Freescale Linux "BSP" for 8540 it should have the patches.
