    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.
