Quote from gcc manpage:
Tune to cpu-type everything applicable about the generated code,
except for the ABI and the set of available instructions. The
choices for cpu-type are:
Intel Pentium4 CPU with MMX, SSE and SSE2 instruction set sup-
Improved version of Intel Pentium4 CPU with MMX, SSE, SSE2 and
SSE3 instruction set support.
Improved version of Intel Pentium4 CPU with 64-bit extensions,
MMX, SSE, SSE2 and SSE3 instruction set support.
To me it /does/ sound as if still sse / mmx code is involved. How about trying
a kernel with the plain base CPUFLAGS as they are in GENERIC
(-march=i486 -mtune=pentiumpro) [as I have suggested to you literally] - note
that the gcc manpage doesn't mention SSE or MMX with even one syllable
when describing the mtune=pentiumpro option. At least then you can rule out
that source of errors.
