    Maybe I'll find some time to look into it more closely. Would it
    help anything if I try booting with "nmi_watchdog=2" (machine is a
    stepping 1 athlon) and provoke another hang? It may take a few days
    before I get another chance though..

    Anyway, thanks for making the patch available, at least it works in SPP
    mode now, which is better than not at all.
