    SubjectRe: aic7xxx lockup for SMP for 2.4.22

    More info on the subject. It turns out that a 2.4.22 kernel
    without SMP-support but with IO-APIC enabled will also lock-up/stop
    when it installs the aic7xxx driver upon boot. Disabling the IO-APIC
    and disabling SMP-support makes the kernel boot normally.
