Time for an aol metoo.. I tried yesterday's cvs kernel this morning and
got a freeze in no time ( build), so went back to my happy
September 12 kernel.

Didn't post before because as I was in X, I couldn't see anything but the
freeze, and there is this other thread about ehci and bge. This box
probably fits in that category too: bge card (unlike the PR not sharing
an interrupt) and ehci with slow keyboard plugged in, but like the PR
an MP acpi kernel (hyperthreading cheap cpu).

This is a Dell GX280 running A05 bios - I see there is a A06 bios available
which seems to fix plenty of USB problems so again yet another possibility,
though no problems with the 12 September kernel and the old bios.
