I applied these patches and I still have the same problem.
I'm starting to think that maybe my kernel is just too broken to use
with my recent binutils/gcc/glibc mix. I was hoping that my efforts
to patch it up to 2.4.5 would have fixed that; I wish the linux-vr
tree was still being updated by people who actually knew what they
were doing (as I certainly don't).
