I'm sorry, I've given you a patch file that conflicts with the existing
once, because I was testing without using them to minimise interference.
I've fixed the file to be patched after  
200-powerpc-add-rbppc-support.patch and  201-powerpc-add-rb_iomap.patch.
The 501.. should be ok.

Comparing the configs I've noticed...
* that RB600/RB300 use a NAND flash but XM1700 uses an error-free 64MB
NOR flash ( S29GL512S10TFI020 -
), this may also could be a problem.
* Also there is no VIA-Chip, so CONFIG_VIA_VELOCITY=y could maybe be
changed to CONFIG_VIA_VELOCITY=m. The Package kmod-via-velocity could be
handled by different profiles, so this should not be a Problem.
* RB600/RB300 uses CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD=y, but XM1700 has no SD card, but
it needs a CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM and uses CONFIG_MMC.
* XM1700 does not need CONFIG_MTD_NAND=y, because it has a NOR flash.
* RB600/RB300 has a SCSI port? (CONFIG_SCSI)
* XM1700 has CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_NR_UARTS=4, no definition found for
* XM1700 needs CONFIG_USB=y to comunicate to the GSM-chip
* RB600/RB300 uses CONFIG_YAFFS_FS as filesystem?

As more as I compare both configs then harder it seems to me to get both
to get together.
