When a compile the kernel with smp support the machine hungs during the boot, this occurs exactly when the dac960 driver is being loaded.

I have what looks like the same problem here only my machine is a quad
PPro system (Intel Alder arch).
One thing is different though, I can't get the DAC960 to initialize no
matter what I do (it's a DAC960PL-2, fw 2.73)
Only thing I've gotten working so far is boot off a RH 7.2 install CD in
rescue mode (DAC960 driver in RH 7.2 CD is too old to support 2.73 fw)
If I boot the RH 7.2 installer the machine hangs right after loading the
The symptoms are the same with kernel 2.4.18 booted of a floppy. If I
include the DAC960 driver the machine will hang as soon as it
loads, only displaying the 2 lines with driver version and copyright information.
A 2.4.18 SMP kernel boots until the DAC960 driver then hangs.
I get these PCI messages on boot (kernel 2.4.18 built for i386)

lspci output is available if needed.
I tried a few other OS just to make sure the machine is okay, and I found
that Win2000 and Solaris 8/IA will install and run without any problems.
FreeBSD 4.5 release seems to have the same problem as Linux, a
hang soon after initializing the AIC7xxx driver.
