    SubjectBuffer corruption (2.1.81)
    When compiling a kernel, it reported an error in a file that compiled
    fine twenty minutes ago. When looking at the source, I see that 4 bytes
    are magically changed, so I suspect the buffers were corrupted. The
    corrupted word was at offset 13300 of the file. I'm running
    2.1.81+linux-2.1.81.diff.gz. There were no syslog reports.

    It might be a hardware problem, I did not run any analysis tool yet.
    The machine is a AMD 486 with 40MB memory, an Adaptec 2940 controller
    and a Teles/16.2.

    If someone can recommend a procedure to analyse such problems if they
    occur again, please let me know. I had binaries suddenly crash with
    earlier kernel versions as well. After rebooting, the files were in
    their original state.

    Regards,
    Martin
