SubjectRe: Fatal Oops on boot with 2.4.0testX and recent GCC snapshots

Hmm, would have been nice, but it crashes here with 20001222, nevertheless.
For which CPU do you have your kernel configured? It might be a CPU specific
issue, I'll try to compile for Pentium I and 486, now, and report my results.

It would also be nice to know if this is a gcc issue or a kernel issue - if I
knew which precise file was responsible for the crash, I could compare the
assembly output for stable and snapshot GCC. My suspect is kernel/sched.c,
but this might be wrong, as the story begins on the launch of kupdate in
fs/buffer.c.

But now I have almost no clue what really goes wrong.

Geetings and a nice christmas to everybody!
Andreas
