Thanks. I will try out today's linux-next later today (if I can find
the time for it).

Just in case it helps track down the problem: Adding percpu=100000 to
the kernel command line got the thing booting for me. The number
itself was picked at random, but it worked on the first try. The
machine is a single-core P4 3.0 GHz with HT, 1G RAM, using slightly
modified F9 config.

the programmer was not looking is intellectually dishonest as it
disguises that the error is the programmer's own creation."
