SubjectRe: Latest on Athlon Via KT133A chipset solution?
Just tested the -ac7 with K7 optimizations on.  I see the same behavior of
oopsing right after boot:

Freeing unused kernel memory: 216k freed
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address

Just fine when I go back down to k6-3, et al, optimizations.

Tyan S2380B VIA KT133A, amd 1.33ghz, regular stepping, no OC or anything.

If you want more info, lemme know.

Also had some USB weirdness, but I'm going to debug that a bit before I
report on it.
