Laurent Vivier handed me a binary which prints a little more:
checking for memory...
0: base = 0x00000000, size = 134217728
1: empty region
total physical memory = 128 MB
suggested page table size = 1048576
need new page table, size = 1048576!
new table at: 0x07d00000
found 6 translations
found exception handlers!
found page table!
Don't know exactly what he changed.
Though it still seems to hand in set-callbacks.
