Here are the few new problems that
I've got:

1. Local APIC stopped working. I know
I have to add "lapic" to the command-line,
but now this doesn't help (in -mm4 either
I think). dmesg says:
Kernel command line: ro root=/dev/hdc2 apm=power-off lapic nmi_watchdog=1
Local APIC not detected. Using dummy APIC emulation.
Is this known? Any other command-line option
to enable it again?

2. Radeon DRM driver stopped working.
dmesg says:
Linux agpgart interface v0.100 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected AMD Irongate chipset
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 439M
agpgart: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xe8000000
[drm] Initialized radeon 1.11.0 20020828 on minor 0: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV200 QW [Radeon 7500]
[drm:radeon_cp_init] *ERROR* radeon_cp_init called without lock held
[drm:drm_unlock] *ERROR* Process 3124 using kernel context 0

There are also the older problems to mention,
like an Oops in kprobes:
(there is also a test-case)
and the memory corruption in smbfs:

If either of these problems can be resolved,
I'd be very happy:)

My /proc/config.gz is attached, just in case.
