1.3.77 didn't fix my file corruption problem.

system: P166, 32mb, Buslogic BT-948, fast SCSI drive with one
partition (1.8gb).

i didn't get any messages in my /var/adm/debug (*.debug in
syslong.conf), or on my tty12 (also *.debug), for any of these

a) i tried to build a kernel and it bombed on line 160 of pgtable.h
... here are the relevant lines:

*** begin clip ***
"lock\n\t" \
"btsl $0, "SYMBOL_NAME_STR(kernel_flag)"\n\t" \
"jnc 3f\n\t" \
"cmpb "SYMBOL_NAME_STR(activeries per page directory level: the i386 is two-level, so
* we don't really have any PMD directory physically.
#define PTRS_PER_PTE 1024
#define PTRS_PER_PMD 1
#define PTRS_PER_PGD 1024
*** end clip ***

b) after that i attempted to reunpack/patch the kernel:

tar -zxf linux-1.3.75.tar.gz ; patch -p -s < patch-1.3.76; patch -p -s < patch-1.3.77
4 out of 4 hunks failed--saving rejects to linux/net/ipv4/tcp_input.c.rej

c) deleted the tree, reexecuted the above and got no messages.
compiled the kernel. booted with the kernel. worked fine.
