Well, as I had said this morning I have feed the Oops to ksymoops, note
that I may have mirtyped something, but anyway here is the output of

ksymoops 2.3.4 on i586 2.4.5-pre1. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.4.5-pre1/ (default)
-m /usr/src/linux/ (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information. I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc. ksymoops -h explains the options.

Kernel panic Aiee killing interrupt handler

2 warnings issued. Results may not be reliable.

As I said I have tried to no make errors, but I copied it at 7 in the
morning, so who knows ... ;-)
