I'm seeing the same here. The gdb output of these segfaults is rather
weird too(gotta look that one up though). Never found time to look
deeper into this.

Hmm...I'm sure that very early 2.4.x kernels worked quiet well on R4600.
One way to hunt the problem down, would be to roll back to 2.4.0 and
spot the point in cvs where things break.
Could it be possible that things fail since glibc uses sysmips?
This kind of limitation can lead administrators to do irrational things,
like install Windows. Clearly a fix was required. (lwn.net)
