Confusingly, I sent two kernel binaries with the same patch level. But you 
can tell them apart from the banner (also /proc/version):

Linux version 4.1.35-mac_scsi-egret+ (fthain@nippy) (gcc version 4.6.3 
(GCC) ) #2 Tue Oct 25 13:37:53 AEDT 2016

Linux version 4.1.35-mac_scsi-egret+ (fthain@nippy) (gcc version 4.6.3 
(GCC) ) #1 Wed Nov 2 13:09:32 AEDT 2016

If I understand correctly, you've only observed two possible outcomes: 
either a hang shortly after "ABCFGHIJK" or else "kernel BUG at 

Does those outcomes apply to both of these kernel binaries, given the same 
Penguin settings etc?

If it is an issue, I've never heard of it. I regularly use Penguin on a 
Powerbook with 12 MB RAM.
