I agree with your suggestion since I would probaby do exactly the same.

I recently read that _one_ system running SMP-linux with the BSD ncr driver
_locks_ up. I did not hear anything about _crashes_.
I read that a bunch of _interrupt_s is enough to lock some systems
running SMP-Linux.
Unfortunately, I donnot have time enough to read all postings about Linux.
Can you, please, forward to me the description of crashes with SMP-linux and
the BSD ncr driver that have been reported to you.

Thanks in advance.
