    I think my crashes were not caused by smp_call_function().

    It seems that "wbinvd" doesn't clear _PAGE_GLOBAL tlb entries, although
    the Intel
    Pentium Pro Manual says that.
    Do you know if there is a Intel errata about clearing _PAGE_GLOBAL tlb
    entries, or where could I search for such an errata?
