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.
