That's great! Many thanks for this work. I'm no expert in kernel
but given directions on what to try I can certainly test stuff.

A similar machine (the Gdium liberty 1000 [1] I purchased from the  "One
Laptop Per Hacker" program [2]) has been stable so far under the same
load, it is running kernel:

Linux version (rtp@dhcp120.mandriva.com) (gcc
version 4.2.3 (4.2.3-6mnb1)) #1 Fri Dec 5 14:35:59 CET 2008
