I am building kernel 2.6.25.4 from DENX with Xenomai 2.4.4 for PPC440EPx
(sequoia development board).

The kernel tries to use DHCP to obtain network settings.  With IPIPE
disabled, this works perfectly.  However, when I enable IPIPE, the board
sends packets ok, but does not receive packets - I can see the DHCP with
a sniffer, but the development board does not receive them.

Also, in order to disable IPIPE, I had to patch
kernel/time/tick-common.c around line 168.  It is missing an ifdef:

If anyone has suggestions as to why IPIPE is blocking received ethernet
packets, I'd appreciate it.
