eisa support is enabled and i'm compiling a 64 bit kernel.


Daring.  Hardly anybody is using EISA on that machine and even less so on
64-bit, expect to find bugs.

Furthermore, 64-bit kernels are somewhat broken on ip22 right now. Something is wrong with memory allocation, and it really screws a lot of things up. Off the top of my head, you won't be able to turn on swap, mount a ricerfs partition, or dd large blocks from /dev/zero. You would be much better of sticking with 32-bit at this time.
