My NEC DDB Vrc-5074 board (with NEC VR5000) is still suffering from stability
problems. If it crashes, it's always in do_page_fault(). If the board is
running without much activity, it can stay alive for days.

I once tried adding NOPs to the R5000 exception handler, as suggested on this
list, but that didn't seem to make any difference.

Anyone with a suggestion?
