2.1.103 with SMP=1 also crashes for me either during boot or
within a few seconds after that on a uniprocessor 440LX 300MHz
Pentium II Intel motherboard, and following your suggestion of
rebuilding in 2.1.102's io_apic.c and irq.c also made the problem
go away for me.

Is everyone who is experiencing this problem running on a motherboard
that can only take one CPU?
