Is there any reason to get following error on x86_64 using your patches?

Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /bzImage ro root=LABEL=/1 console=ttyS0,115200
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1c00, size=0x24917c]
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-rc3.img
[Linux-initrd @ 0x37e0d000, 0x1e25e7 bytes]

Decompressing Linux...

length error

-- System halted
