Sorry for delay in replying - I've been bisecting but ended up with:

commit 60a0cd528d761c50d3a0a49e8fbaf6a87e64254a
Merge: e25e092 8e35961
Author: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
Commit: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

Merge branch 'merge' of
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/benh/powerpc

* 'merge' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/benh/powerpc:
powerpc/mm: Fix broken MMU PID stealing on !SMP

which seems wrong given I have and x86 machine. I guess I didn't try
enough reboots before reporting a kernel as good.

However, I did get two bad boots. The dmesg for a good boot and config
are attached. As I don't get to user space on a bad boot, I can't
provide a dmesg, but a photograph of the panic can be viewed at
http://img99.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dscn0617b.jpg

I'll start bisecting again, but allow may more reboots before deciding
a kernel is good.

Let me know if I can provide any additional information.

Thanks
