As an additional data point, 2.1 kernels cannot be rebooted
succesfully either. On my miata, a warm reboot causes the kernel to
sit for quite a while at the calculating bogomips stage. From memory
(although it's a long time since I waited for it), it does eventually
progress, only to die on something like SCSI or serial probes.
I don't generally use ESC (reboots are to upgrade kernels, c'est
n'est pas? :), but last time I did, I saw similar things to James.
