fyi, I tested w/ a 2.6.26 32-bit UP kernel w/ the
up-optimization-removal patch, and received another hang:

I'd be happy to test it if you can point me to a changeset.

Both machines were running an unpatched SMP 2.6.26 until I upgraded
penalosa for the test I refer to above. The thinking being that -
though these machines are single CPU - the SMP version should avoid
the UP optimization code.

There were no protection trap messages in penalosa's dmesg after the
above hang. In fact, it contains nothing other than bootup messages.
Thanks for all your help so far - its really appreciated.
