Starting networking (lo) freezes with 2.4.5-ac4

Hi.

        I got this address from the MAINTAINERS file in the linux kernel
tree. I apologize if this is sent to you in error. I'm unable to get
networking (just lo, actually, as I have no use for ethernet at this time)
working with a 2.4.5 kernel (either unpatched, or patched with
patch-2.4.5-ac4 or -ac3). The machine totally freezes whenever it tries
to bring lo up, either via an Sxxnetwork script in /etc/rc.d/init.d , or
after booting up via ifconfig at the command line. I'm unable to ctrl-c
out of it, and I can't even open up a second VT when this happens, which
leads me to believe it's a kernel problem. I have no problems at all with
the 2.4.1 kernel, however. My hardware is the following:

        AMDK6-2 400MHz
        DFI P5BV3+ motherboard with 256 MB RAM.
        Matrox G100 AGP video card
        One WD 8.4G IDE hard drive.
        External modem.

        My gcc version is egcs-2.91.66, and binutils is
binutils-2.9.5.0.22-6. All other required programs satisfy the
requirements in the kernel's Changes file. I have the relevant lines from
my kernel .config file below. I can post the contents of my network setup
files or module setup files if requested.

        Thanks for any help.
