SubjectRe: 2.4.19-pre2 CentaurHauls VIA Samuel 2 stepping 2 SEGFAULT (RESOLVED)
I pulled the chipset datasheet for CentaurHauls VIA
Samuel 2 stepping 2.

Two seperate i386/kernel/setup.c fixes things seems to
fix this chipset.

1. Disabled the Branch Predictor in MSR_VIA_FCR
2. cachesize=0

Other attempts to fix this were:
3. Disabling L2 Cache OOP'd so that's not an option.
4. Disables I-Cache (too slow)
5. Disables D-Cache OOP'd
6. Disables Page Directory Cache is a NOP.

I've settled for cachesize=0.

Hope this is not a trend here.
