Yes, I've been following the discussion. I don't use IP masq (and it's not
built into my kernels), so it's probably not the culprit in my case. I
also have turned of SKB_LARGE and PCI bridge optimizations; neither of those
helped. gcc, 2.8.0, and egcs-1.0.1 all show this behavior. (I was
hoping that fiddling with compilers might move code around just enough to
hide the problem).

If I could find the aforementioned debugging patches, I'd love to apply them
and see if I can help sort things out; mysterious hangs with no oops or
other information (shift-scrollock and other magic keys don't work) aren't
much to go on, so I can't be helpful until I find some way to gather more
