Bad luck, my box is still not stable even though this bug has been fixed.

I'm working on it. There are several issues that will take me a couple
of days to work them out. My two main projects are
- rebuilding RedHat 4.9.1 for big endian MIPS (like the Indy). This is
the most urgent part and I'm working (well, my Indy ...) on it.
- my kernel tree has diverged significantly from what were publishing
on Linus. Have to merge them both.
You can usually get the bugfixes from the kernel sources/binaries available
on Linus. The last one is a bit old, though ...
