I believe the kernel was compiled for Pentium Pro and up systems.  Would this
cause it to not be compatible with a standard K6?  If so, we can move the
optimizations back to Pentium Classic, if that will work for everyone.

Congratulations, you found a potential bug :)  Let me know how you'd like
your kernel optimized and I'll compile a .tbz2 for you.  If that ends up
being the problem, I'll have it fixed in rc4.
