    SubjectRe: Two OUCHes with Linux 2.1.103-5
    Sorry to follow up to my own post, but I have managed to get and
    compile 2.1.106 kernels for both my machines and ...

    # Ouch#1: one box that was happily running with kernel 2.1.103 suddenly
    # can no longer boot with 2.1.105!
    # System: Dual PPro 200/256 [..] 256MB RAM (...), AHA2940UW controller
    # Setup: Red Hat Linux 4.2, some minor patches, [...] 2.1.103 with no
    # problems. [...] "Socket destroy delayed (r=0 w=xx)" repeated
    # often in /var/log/messages. Has been running for 6months.
    # Symptom: when trying to boot up in 2.1.105, the second drive (5400rpm)
    # is not detected at all after the SCSI bus reset. I am using a
    # lilo append="mem=256m aic7xxx=tag_info:{{8,0,0,8,0,0,0,0}}".

    Problem yet to recur after a coupla hours with 2.1.106 (compiled with
    gcc 2.7.2 libc5) must something have been broken in 2.1.105 ...? I'll
    wait a little before attempting to run it at 233 again (now 200).

    # Ouch#2: System locks up hard after CD-ROM door open and closes.
    # System: Dual PPro 166/512 [...] 192MB, AHA2940 [...]
    # Setup: Newly reinstalled Red Hat Linux 5.1; same aic7xxx params above.
    # Symptom: when running 2.1.101 has a persistent lock-up [...]-- X
    # windows often locked after a figure is displayed. When using
    # either 2.1.101 and 2.1.103, has many "Spurious APIC Interrupt,
    # Aiyeee, should never happen" reports. Does *NOT* report APIC
    # spurious reports under 2.1.105, but system reproducibly locks
    # hard after CD-RO ejection and re-insertion.

    So far so good <pausing, knocking wood> with 2.1.106 (compiled with
    egcs 1.0.3a), xplaycd does okay with two opening and closings. BTW,
    the clock problem is currently not plaguing me ... with 2.1.10[123]
    there is a serious clock drift with any kind of load ... is this me or
    a wider-spread phenomenon?
