The 3.1.1-1 smp kernel proved to be quite unreliable on the ES45.  It
crashed during the test suite of a build of git.  I mean to do some more
testing before reporting to the linux-kernel mail list.

I have temporarily gone back to the modified 2.6.32 lenny-backports smp
kernel that I built for the buildds.  The test suite of the git build
worked fine.  It has been working now for a few days on the ES45 without

Acutally, no, not quite.  Running dmesg now and I see that a page
allocation failure has recently been reported.  I think that is what you
reported happening on the A1200.  So, maybe I don't have a better
kernel.  Hmmmmmmmmm
