The following oops has occured enough for me to see a common factor.
I run for days without an oops, then I go to my dos partition. This time
to only get a directory listing. Some time later I get an oops similar
to this one.
The process id has been make and cc as well as netscape. The one
previous to this came after I copied vmlinux to /dosc/lodlin and
shutdown to test the lodlin boot.
That oops did not get recorded, but the reboot to linux came up clean.
These have happened since 2.1.62
