No problem here. I'm using 1007 since its release in first half
Linux version 2.4.3-ac12-amd (root@ppc) (gcc version 3.0 20010402 (Debian prerelease)) #1 Mon Apr 23 02:31:13 CEST 2001
Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=Linux ro root=2105 video=matrox:vesa:0x105,fv:85 devfs=nomount
Detected 1009.013 MHz processor.
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) Processor stepping 02
Enabling fast FPU save and restore... done.
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.14)
Except that I got 'ide only func: 14' today with my Promise PDC20265
(which looks strange to me - either all Intel, VIA and Promise have
same bug in their UDMA hardware, or there is a bug in Linux IDE
driver...) (I had to reboot because of kernel somehow believed that
it read some garbage instead of MBR from hdg, so I could not run my
repartitioning session, as I found no way to invalidate hdg kernel
But machine for sure does not spontaneously reboot. And I have
enabled local apic in kernel configuration. All previous kernels
were built with Debian's 2.95.3-something, ac12 was built with
gcc-3.0, as I wanted to update anyway, and ac12 just gave me a reason.
