VM bug in 2.4.10-pre15 (been there a while though)

I just had a hard crash on 2.4.10-pre15. As such, I don't have a capture of
the output, but I did copy down everything from the oops except the stack,
calltrace, and code segments, but since it's hand copied, forgive the
case changes and possible typos. Also, attached is my kernel .config.

System is a dual P3-550 with 1gig ram. Stock kernel, no patches except
-pre15 applied.

init: Version 2.82 booting
Activating Swap
Adding Swap: 265064k swap-space (priority 1)
Checking root file system...
Invalid Operand: 0000
CPU: 0
EIP: 0010:[<c012b7e8>]
EFLAGS: 00010202
EAX: 00000000 EBX: c1e0f060 ECX: 000001F0 EDX: 00000000
ESI: 000001f0 EDI: c1e0f060 EBP: c1e0f0d4 ESP: c0361e88
process swapper (pid: 0, stackpage = c0361000)
 <0>kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
In interrupt handler - not syncing

After that, the system locks up tight. The .config was copied verbatim with
no changes from my working 2.4.3 config, but when I tested 2.4.8 and 2.4.9,
they had similar crashes right after booting. Was unable to test kernels
2.4.4-2.4.7 because of various modules I use having compile errors.

Let me know if there is any additional info that I can provide to help in
tracking this down. Please cc me directly in case I miss it in the kernel
