Something's fishy. I guess ;-)

I assume it's your specific configuration that's triggering the problem.
I've got the current CVS kernel running on 2 dual processor O200 and a
32 processor Origin 2000, so it can't be all broken. I think all known
to be working configuratons are machines with significantly more memory;
dunno if that's really related or not.
Thanks for sending the oops message; however without additional data
provided I can't use it. Can you please point please put the kernel image
that resulted in the oops online?
