SubjectKernel lockups during VC switching
I've had a problem ever since upgrading to 2.0.10 the other day. 
Occasionally, during virtual console switches, the kernel will decide to take
a long walk off a short pier and lock up. There is nothing left in the syslog
or the kernel messages; the system just locks.

I haven't been able to track this down at all, short of noting that it
happens during VC switches, and that I had a similar problem with one of the
1.3.x kernels (1.3.57 or 1.3.67 maybe).

Hardware:
386/20 with a warmed over 386 chip in it (Cyrix 386->486 upgrade.
They add support for 486 instructions and a 1K L1 cache). AWE32 Plug and
Pray, configured from DOS (then I reboot into Linux). Mitsumi 4X CDROM
plugged into the IDE port on the AWE32 -- Linux likes it. 8MB RAM.

This appears to be specific to 2.0.10. 2.0.8 didn't have this problem.

I've included my arch/i386/defconfig file to show how I have my kernel
configured.
