Subject2.1.90 toxic to my system
2.1.90 is the first 2.1 kernel I've tried installing.  So far
it's pretty disappointing on my system, as it tends to lock up
within a few minutes of booting. I would be happy to provide
more information if I could figure out how to get it; usually the
lockups freeze the system so hard that only hitting the reset
button produces a response, and the couple of times I was able to
type things or switch VCs on the way down I didn't think to hit
one of the magic keys to see if it would tell me where it was
wedged. This system is running fine under 2.0.33. If someone
does take an interest in this I'd also be happy to provide
whatever hardware and configuration details that you request.

I sort of suspect it's related to SCSI oddities; under 2.0.33 I
have to boot my system with "BusLogic=0,1" to prevent SCSI
timeouts under heavy I/O on my BusLogic 545C. Strangely, lilo
seems to be very good at triggering catatonia. It always gets
through the initial fscks on reboot fine, though.

The only other problem I've seen in the brief times 2.1.90 was
running for me is that the new sound driver exhibits a behavior
where processes that are writing to /dev/audio don't seem to exit
when the sound is done.
