A lot of people seem to be using gcc-3.2 these days, since it's what RH-8
comes with as standard. I don't think there are any _known_ problems with
that compiler, at least on x86.

Now, interestingly enough, the mjb patch _does_ contain a change to
mm/memory.c that really makes no sense _except_ in the case of a compiler
bug. So you could check whether that (small) mm/memory.c patch is the
thing that makes a difference for you..

It would also be interesting to see if you can check just the scheduler
part of the mjb patch. On the whole the mjb patch looks like it should be
fairly easy to cut into specific parts, and Martin may actually have it
somewhere as separate patches.
