    Hi Arjan,

    first, highmem is fixed and the original patch you have from me is good.
    second, Daniel Phillips gave me some feedback into how to figure out the
    VM error. I am working on it, although just the VM potential --
    ReiserFS may be another problem.

    third, you may be experiencing problems with a kernel optimized for
    Athlon. this may or may not be related to the current issues with an
    Athlon-optimized kernel. Basically, functions in arch/i386/lib/mmx.c
    seem to need some locking to prevent preemption. I have a basic patch
    and we are working on a final one.
