I'm running gcc-2.7.2 (strength reduce bug fixed; compiling without
-fno-strength-reduce), libc-5.2.18,, sysvinit-2.58-2 freshly
compiled as above. Almost everything in my kernel are modules.

The same configuration for the kernel that works on 1.3.80 gives me tons of
the above messages with 1.3.8{1,2} when I reboot.
