SubjectIRQ problem? (oops in test12)
Howdy again folks, I have another oops for ya's to look over...

Yesterday when I was about to patch and build the new (test12) kernel I found
the ominous message:
Kernel panic: attempted to kill init!
Something like that anyway. No other info, just locked up solid.
No real clues on that one sorry.

But now today, about 22 hours after booting test12, I got another one:

ksymoops 2.3.4 on i686 2.4.0-test12. Options used
-v /usr/src/linux/vmlinux (specified)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)

-o /lib/modules/2.4.0-test12/ (default)
-m /boot/ (specified)

Aiee, killing interrupt handler
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!

I'm guessing it's due to a irq sharing problem between the rtl8139 and the usb
controller, which were both using 11 at the time of the oops.
After that I disabled assigning irq to the usb in the bios since I don't
actually use it. But then they both change to irq 5, as the dmesg + lspci shows:
