    SubjectLinux 2.4.24-pre1: Instant reboot
    Hi Marcelo, et al,

    Just wanted to report an instantaneous reboot problem with 2.4.24-pre1.

    I don't even see any printk's to the screen; as soon as LILO is finished
    loading the new kernel, the screen blanks and the BIOS goes through its

    defaults (e.g. XFS=n, OOM_KILLER=n). I've had no problems with this
    otherwise rock-stable platform for all varieties of 2.4.x, save for some
    early USB EHCI issues long ago.

    At work now, so I don't have a full .config handy, but:

    * Soltek SL-75DRV2 (UP, Athlon XP 1700, VIA KT266A [VT8366A/VT8233])
    * Root = ext3 on IDE partition
    * DevFS, DevPTS, IDE-SCSI=cdrom0, USBStorage, USB EHCI, VFAT
    * RadeonFB, IPTables, Realtek-8139
    Everything else in .config is pretty vanilla (e.g. Linus defaults or
