I think you might be seeing an artifact of the reset process. Folks have
posted that commenting out the SMP=1 on uniprocessor systems in the top
level Makefile (just like the Makefile SAYS to do, BTW) seems to correct
this problem.

I have done this along with an undef of the serial console echo stuf
and am remaking a new test kernel as this is being typed.

Debian/GNU Linux ... the maintainable operating system.
