Subject: 5000 kernels broken ?

Hello pmax people,

Have anyone rebuilt their kernels for pmax'es (in particular on 5000/133's) during
this week?

My machine is currently running a kernel and userland built on sources sup'ed on
4 Sep 1999.

At the beginning of this week and again today, I tried to boot a new kernel built
on updated sources. The machine hangs solidly after:

tc0 at mainbus0: 12.5MHz clock
ioasic0 at tc0 slot 3 offset 0x0
le0 at ioasic0 offset 0xc0000

Not even the reset button resets the machine -- I have to powercycle it to revive
it. A "normal" dmesg goes like:

Today I made a complete rebuild of the kernel including make clean.

What has happened since 4 Sep that produces this unusually hard hanging ?
