[crash/panic] Linux-2.6.0-test9

I have:

Asus P4C800 Deluxe w/2.4GHz P4 (no HT and not 800Mhz bus)

Tried test8 and, now, test9 and both exhibit same problem.

The issue seems to be related to the PnPBIOS support under the Plug and Play Kconfig category. When enabled I get a crash of the form:

Linux Plug and Play Support v0.97 (c) Adam Belay
PnPBIOS: Scanning system for PnP BIOS support...
PnPBIOS: Found PnP BIOS installation structure at 0xc00f5350

Call Trace:

....blinking cursor and nothing else.

If I remove the PNPBIOS option I get past this point. I would be happy to email my full .config should anyone wish to look at it. I'd also be happy to test any patches anyone may have for this issue.
