SubjectPentium LIVES
I ran my test program on the 2.1.63 kernel. The fix works! I also
have a 64-bit random-number generator running on another machine
to check for other problems on the Pentium. Without the prefix, one
has to be careful because a loop-forever is possible. I fix this with
an alarm-clock timeout of the child. Basically, I have been executing
64-bits of random garbage (with the known sequences excluded). This
has been running since 3-AM. I will run this for several weeks or
until another bad sequence is found. The machine it's running on is
presently not in use otherwise.

It's been booted with init=/bin/bash to maximize the CPU cycles
available for the test program.
