Subjectsome issues for 2.4.0
Hello,

I have some issues on Linux-2.4.0:

During boot the (slightly modified, see later) kernel says:

<4>Linux version 2.4.0-NANO (root@elf) (gcc version 2.95.2 19991024 (release)) #1 Mon Jan 8
22:04:48 MET 2001
[...]
<4>PCI: PCI BIOS revision 2.10 entry at 0xfb280, last bus=1
<4>PCI: Using configuration type 1
<4>PCI: Probing PCI hardware
<4>Unknown bridge resource 0: assuming transparent

??? What does the message above mean?

<4>PCI: Using IRQ router VIA [1106/0596] at 00:07.0
<6>Activating ISA DMA hang workarounds.

The DMI reports some funny values for my low-price board (the vendor
did not ship a DMI utility as Asus did for my old one):

<6>DMI 2.2 present.
<6>39 structures occupying 1055 bytes.
<6>DMI table at 0x000F0800.

??? Aren't they (above two lines) funny?

As reported for 2.4.0-test12 there seems to be a problem timing events
within an interrupt (e.g. serial): The jitter is quite high. I'm
timing pulses generated from a GPS clock every second to estimate the
clock error. I'll show the first few updates. Let's show some facts
first, and they state a suspect. The pair is seconds:nanoseconds
for the captured timestamps. My pulse is roughly 200ms+800ms:

I either think that some overflow happens, or that some spinlock is
really busy. You can find the patch used in
