SubjectRe: SMP instability in 2.4.21-pre3-ac4, oops provided

I just had another fine specimen. Written down by hand, omitted the
stack values. Can this kmem_cache_alloc_batch function have anything to
do with the 512 K cache size of these Pentium/3 Tualatin CPU's as
opposed to 256 K for normal Pentium/3 Coppermine CPU's?

ksymoops 2.4.8 on i686 2.4.21-pre3-ac4. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.4.21-pre3-ac4/ (default)
-m /boot/ (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.

Whoever thought that one up should have his head examined. Bloody minstrels...
