Lockups both with CONFIG_MTRR and w/out on 2.1.120-pre3(minus Patch) (post
boot)..

To make sure I wasn't dreaming I pulled the patch put a fresh 2.1.120-pre3
without MTRR patch and without CONFIG_MTRR and reproduced the lockup
under the following conditions (but unable to cause lockup with
patch re-applied)


heavily loaded apache_1.3.0 (frontpage extentions..hit heavy)
heavily loaded squid_1.2 beta24 (caches spanning 2 24gb ultra's)
find / -name 'blahblah'

system:
Adaptec onboard AIC-7880 Ultra SCSI host adapter (stock 2.1.120-pre3
driver)
smp enabled.
max file descriptors upped from 256->1024
Network card: tulip.c:v0.89H 5/23/98 becker@cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov
Lite-On 82c168 PNIC (not stock driver..needed PNIC)
Video: Diamond Stealth PCI 4mb

thing is from what I know about mtrr (which can fit in this dot ->.
it 'should' be irrelevent whether enabled or not ..since
its just a server..never run X-apps..no high video..etc..just
disk and memory thrashing..
