I'm not so sure about harmless. These messages come from do_page_fault in
arch/i386/mm/fault.c. If this fault occurred in a 2.0.25 kernel, the kernel
would kill the user process with a signal 11. It never happens. Only the
2.1.9 and 2.1.10 can generate this message.

I'm using make 3.74, gcc 2.7.2.1, binutils 2.7.0.3 and libc 5.4.12.
Originally, I had libc 5.4.10, but upgraded just in case. Still get these
messages.

I think there's something goofy going on.
