Well, consider that the machine on which i developed and tested the
changes has (among other things) an aha1742, and has been running the
changes since a while before they were committed, i'd:
(1) make sure you 'config'd your kernel, and make sure you
built it from scratch,
(2) try a new kernel with "very" up-to-date sources, etc.
Nothing's changed recently, but your source tree might
have been hosed in some way or other,
(3) send me a copy of your kernel config file, if you're
still having problems, and i'll look it over, and perhaps
come up with a few new ideas of what to try.
