[very solid evidence of compiler bug snipped]
I'd been compiling -current kernels for i386 with -O6
-feliminate-frame-pointer between approximately 8 months. I stopped
and went back to -O2 sometime in about May, after installing the
'upgrade' to gcc 184.108.40.206, because it caused kernel crashes. I _think_
all the machines that crased had 3c595s.
I'd guess the two are related; maybe it could help someone pinpoint
the bug a little more easily.
