    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.
