I get now an endless loop of

Jul 25 13:44:34 zahn vmunix: stuck on smp_invalidate_needed IPI wait (CPU#1)

right after

Jul 25 13:44:34 zahn vmunix: Freeing unused kernel memory: 68k freed

with Linux 2.1.111/SMP. The system is based on Dual-PentiumII, 233MHz,
Gigabyte GA-686LX2 motherboard. This happens with an egcs-compiled
kernel as well as a gcc- one.

Version 2.1.110 and prepatch 2.1.110-1 had just one of those
messages at the same place before proceeding normally.

Linux 2.1.108 did not have this message at all for me.
