Something like this:
Lenny kernel fails to boot on Sparc workstations with PCI-Express
Due to an unfortunate interaction of a kernel fix with PCI-Express
subsystem, Lenny default kernel will fail to boot on Sparc
workstations with PCI-Express slots, like Ultra 25 and Ultra 45. As
this problem has been discovered very late in the release cycle, we
were unable to include a fix in the original Lenny release, but we'll
do our best to eliminate the problem for the first point release.
