Linux 2.1.x fails on Amd K6/200 (works fine on P200MMX)

Really wierd... Right after
PIIX: IDE controller on PCI bus 0 function 57
PIIX: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
ide0: BM-DMA at 0xe800-0xe807, BIOS settings: hda:pio, hdb:pio

it either fails with
unknown interrupt (and stops)
no vm86_info: BAD (and stops)

This is on a intel HX chipset, 128meg ram, 2.1.79

Possibly being bitten by a PGCC bug? Unlikely, since I was running 2.1.x
kernels on this machine with this compiler earlier.

Any ideas? I have CONFIG_SMP commented out, and did a make dep clean bzImage

same image runs fine on a P200mmx/64mb/FX chipset.

I tried with both CONFIG_586 and CONFIG_686, same result.
