Hmm. I've been having some weird problems with a system. It's been giving
me OOPSes and then after that every time a process started, another OOPS,
until I hit the reset button. I saw this message, checked my
/proc/cpuinfo, and lo and behold! it's a pentium with stepping of 5.

Unfortunately, I missed Linus' warning about these chips. Can somebody
fill me in? Do I need to replace the chip or is there some workaround?
