Hmmm.  Well there were an unusual number of compiler warnings about .got
sections.  I'm using gcc 3.3.2.

For me USB has always been unreliable on the alpha.  It's so bad I just
removed the USB card altogether and now I use my laptop for USB stuff.
(I haven't used USB on alpha in over a year now)

That's the one.

Well only if you need an entertaining way to spend your Saturday.  I'll
play with it some more tomorrow.  As someone else indicated the warning
about scsi debug is not fatal, however my oops happened right after
loading the Buslogic driver.  But since it didn't get to init I can't
dump it to ksymoops...and the alpha has so many registers to copy by
hand...  ;)
