I'm using 2.4.0 with my Thinkpad and up to now everything works. I had some troubles with my PC-CARD C-ROM drive, in fact because a link to the proper kernel module was lacking in the /lib/modules/2.4.0/pcmcia directory. May be your problem with memory_cb is the same. Anyway I don't have that module on my machine. If you don't use it you should re-compile your kernel without that module.

A diff of the two relevent log files shows a bunch of lines which used to end in MXBE now end in MXB, and something about "Systen lacks support for MTRRs". Other than that, nothing. 
May be you forgot to compile MTRR support in the kernel ('Processor type and feature' menu). I have a Pentium mmx, so I don't need it.
