Freeze on cat /proc/bus/00/*

Running kernel 2.1.88 on a Cyrix 200MX with 64 meg on an Asus (someone
threw away the damn box) TX5N with a 430TX chipset.

I just upgraded today, and was curious about any /proc changes/additions,
so I looked around, (as a normal user) cd'd into /proc/bus/00 and issued a
cat *, this locked the machine up. No vc switching, num lock, or network.

I'm not about to try that again, as my users get pretty irritated when the
machine randomly reboots... :) But if no one else can reproduce or see
the problem, I'll investigate further.
