o.k., you're right. this time it's really -P5 :-)

tried it with the options, no success. built a kernel without
powermanagement and without cpu speedstep at all. exactly the same
behavior, directly after unpacking the kernel at the beginning of

0 MB highmem
511 mb lowmem available

ACPI build 1 zone list
Detected Processor...
Memory ...
Checking if processor honors the WP bit even in supervisor mode... ok.

that's it. freezes for 1-2 seconds after this last message, then
reboots. tried to write down these contents of the screen, as far as
i could recognize them during the short period of time.

i am wondering especially about the ACPI messages, as ACPI is
completely switched off now.

second (minor) issue: when having enabled CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY(=y)
but not CONFIG_PREEMPT_TIMING(=n), i get the following when linking:

LD init/built-in.o
LD .tmp_vmlinux1

make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

maybe latency.o is not included when linking without
