    -git5 works, -git7 showed reiserfs corruption. -git6 died, jumped from
    __do_softirq to 0x0, will try once again.

    git5->6 has the mutex changes, but also lots of powerpc changes. Lets
    see if I can narrow it down further.

    The ibook has 160mb, installation is done via modular nfs
    I havent seen this on a B&W G3 with 256mb, nor on other ppc32 systems.
