Don't worry, on i386 it crashes on boot ;-)

Nice to know.

What about a file describing known/suspected problems with each of the
kernels? Say comments-2.1.44:

Don't use, screws up your filesystem -- Linus 970707
Crashes on boot on i386 -- Horst von Brand 970706
...

comments-2.1.43:

Messes up ext2 filesystems when renaming a directory -- ...


I know this is extra work for the maintainers, but there are lots of
enthusiastic testers out there that aren't reached by the lists...

Good luck!

Waiting paitently for 2.1.45,
