[panic] "Cheetah error trap taken" with Debian 2.6.24 kernel
Hi sparclinux devs (AKA David),
We got a report on the Debian Sparc list of an installation issue
involving a kernel panic. The thread so far is here:
(month split; both have follow-ups)

OK, that seems pretty clear. This is still with the daily installer image,
Let's ask the kernel developers for advice as this panic comes from there
First lines of the trap (see screenshot linked above for rest!):
Cheetah error trap taken afsr afar [000007f900800000]
TPC[553f94] TNPC[553f98] O7 TSTATE
The kernel is either Debian kernel based on 188.8.131.52 (if the installer
image is an older daily build) or 184.108.40.206 (if it is a current daily).
Exact version can be checked if needed.
I've added the original reporter in CC for easier follow-up.
