Hi all,

I was trying to compile 2.0.30 on a 2.0.30 kernel with gcc- and I
got the following error while the compiler was compiling NCR support:

Problem: block on freelist 00000000 isn't free

and the machine hanged.

After a reboot, I removed the NCR support from the kernel and tried to

then I got:

kernel panic: trying to release non existent task

and again the system hung.

There are no entries in the syslog regarding these problems. Why do tehy
