	If an hp300 kernel is compiled with only support for "HP320", the
	kernel panics immediately upon boot, from excessive lost
	interrupts. ('sr 2500', if memory serves.) This was not the case
	prior to the 4.4 integration.
	Compile an hp320 specific kernel. Requires an hp320.
	To avoid the problem, add a higher level machine type to the list
	of supported CPUs. (i.e., 370 support.)
