    CPU 2: Machine Check Exception: 000...0004
    CPU 3: Machine Check Exception: 000...0004

    Is what I get now. Previously I also got "Kernel Context Corrupt" in addition
    to the above.

    The MCE error can be made to appear when, for example, I'm running a
    configure/compile cycle. I thought it might be a SATA issue so installed
    Mandrake on an IDE drive but I got the same error.

    As an aside, I'm running Gentoo with CFLAGS=-O2 -march=pentium4 -pipe ... I
    was running CFLAGS=-O3 -march=pentium3 -mcpu=pentium4 -mmmx -ssse2 (and so
    on) with no difference whatsoever (probably shouldn't be a surprise bearing
    in mind the kernel is compiled with its own flags).

    I've run MEMTEST with no errors reported. It's a very interesting problem,
    since with SMP only everything works okay. But SMP+Hyperthreading and, sooner
    rather than later, the thing will bomb.
