Subjectproblems with 2.5.61-mm1
I've been beating on various versions of 2.5.59 all day long with no
problems that I didn't cause. I started testing 2.5.61-mm1 and rand
into a couple problems right away.

The first I really doubt is -mm specific. I gets _loads_ of these, and
the e1000 isn't working:
NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
e1000: eth0 NIC Link is Up 1000 Mbps Full Duplex

The e1000 driver hasn't been touched in weeks. Here's my /proc/interrupts:
I'm pretty sure we can see the problem here. Almost all interrupts are
going to CPU0. Is this a summit thing?

The other looks a bit more insidious.

I didn't compile with -g, but I have a hunch it is this:
for (i = open_files; i != 0; i--) {
struct file *f = *old_fds++;
if (f)
get_file(f); <=============
*new_fds++ = f;

The offset of f_count in struct file is 0x14. The "test %eax,%eax" is
probably the "if (f)"
