So, after much trial and error, I've managed to make a build out of
the CVS repository that works and doesn't crash.

I managed to build the linux_2_4_2 tag with the attached patch -- the
patch just fixes up two lines of source code to match new parameter
definitions.  Nothing really fancy.  But this kernel is rock-solid,
and the linux_2_4_3 tag is very crash-prone.

Of course, lots of stuff changed in between all this... so I'm still
pouring over the diffs to see what is causing this.  Anyone with some
helpful suggestions is encouraged to speak up.

Someone with CVS checking authority might want to check in the patch,
just so other people can build 2.4.2 more easily.
