SubjectRe: Linux-2.1.98..

Linus, After reading David's account of oopsen on the patch you sent I
decided to try the patch you sent to the list. I get the same thing.
The kernel that works here has a vanilla .98 without floppy and the
patch (below) to enable_ioapic_irq().

Whatever else you added to this patch is munging up the code. I'll
cc it to the list for David and co.
