Linux kernels 2.0.14 and 2.0.16 fail on EB164

I have an EB164 system (EB164, PCI VGA video, NCR SCSI). Kernels
2.0.14 and 2.0.16 (with the appropriate axp-diffs patch applied) do
not boot. The system hangs after milo prints the load addresses and
starts the kernel. I have no idea where to start looking to debug this
(I wish the kernel knew how to panic, or at least print an error before

2.0.10 runs; I think 2.0.12 did too.
