I guess this explain the corruption. Please make sure the cpu are not
overclocked at all and then try to reproduce. You cannot choose 180mhz
or 200mhz randomly based on which kernel crashes or not, if the cpu are
180mhz ppro you should use 180mhz only, 200mhz will break. It won't
break so easily as 233mhz, but it will, the timings are strict on smp.
So please try to reproduce at 180mhz if the cpu should run at 180mhz.

I don't want to sound boring but please next times try if you can
reproduce on non overclocked hardware before reporting anything to l-k.
