You are probably more aware which CPUs implement which subset
of floating point instructions. parisc-linux kernel might
still have bugs in the FP exception handling code for older CPUs.
I expect most testing was on PA7100LC (712/80) or PA7300LC (B180) CPUs.
ie later processors than what is in the 710 (PCX-S, IIRC) box.
It would be worth checking if you are in fact excercising that code and how.
You have time to rebuild your kernel with #define FPUDEBUG 1
No promises that anyone will fix the problem, but without this info
no one can.
