SubjectRe: Updated 2.4 TODO List

I _highly_ suspect that this is not a 2.4 bug but is instead user error.
I've seen it several times.

On all kernel versions prior to 2.3.11 if you compiled with the CPU set
to a newer model then you had (for instance, of you selected "Pentium Pro"
and you actually had a 486) you would get a kernel that worked fine albiet
not optimally. On kernels 2.3.11 you will have an unbootable kernel.

Yup, that sounds like it. Could someone with a Thinkpad 390 confirm
that they can boot with a properly configured kernel? Many thanks.
(Bug now moved to "Should be fixed, confirmation wanted")
