That won't help: the kernel's identical, and according to [1] (link provided
by Peter Teichmann in debian-arm), it's a kernel problem. I don't think that
I'm in a position to try to fix this - for a start, I need a cross-compiler,
and even given that... I just don't have enough of an idea of what I'm
looking for ATM other than an MCR (or is it MRC? I never can remember)
instruction is involved. However, I'm reasonably sure that the solution needs
to involve a volatile void*... ICBW, of course :-)
