Earlier I reported that the f00f workaround was not enabled on my
computer. I was partly in error. A few minutes ago, after unmounting my
disks, I did this:

[root@Sleepy /root]# ./f00f
Illegal Instruction
[root@Sleepy /root]# ./f00f

[machine hangs]

I think there is a real problem with the f00f workaround in recent
kernels.

It's a dual pentium 133 system, Intel 430HX chipset, stock kernel 2.1.119,
stable hardware. Could someone please look into this? I'm a kernel tester,
not a kernel hacker, but I'd be happy to try and help someone track this
down.
