I've not used that kernel, but have encountered the "symbol errors"
problem elsewhere with SMP kernels.

If you can, change the SMP cpnfig to de-modularize (ie build in) the
SCSI subsystem, XFS, and IPV6; all those modules appear to be too
large, in some way.  You don't need to de-modularize the SCSI drivers,
just the higher layers of that subsystem.

Good luck.
