The similar problem occurs on many of our machines, so I would exclude
memory corruption.

The numbers crunched by these machines are loaded from and writtem to
the net, so I would assume that.

We had these machines running potato with 2.2.21 since last summer and
the kernel never oopsed.

Due to this fact I expect this to be a bug in the SMP code of 2.4.20 or
a kernel misconfiguration by us.

I'll send the next oops as soon as it occurs.

Kind regards,
