	Unless there are any better suggestions, does anyone have a chance
	to look at trying to track down when this problem started?
	The best way would probably be to install a 1.5.x system then
	use anoncvs to update a source tree to various dates in between
	and compile a test kernel. Might want to start by generating a
	-current toolchain and compiling a 1.5.x kernel with that to
	eliminate toolchain issues (and confirm you have a toolchain that
	should be able to compile any intermediate kernel :)

	Unfortunately our ulpt using box is also's main
	internal fileserver that makes it a little hard to play with :(
