Kernel panic when rebooting etch AMD64
About two out of three times I get a kernel panic when booting etch on my
AMD64 system. It started a few days ago when I upgraded from kernel
2.6.18-3-amd64. The rest of the time it comes up normally.
hendrik@april:~$ uname -a
Linux april 2.6.18-6-amd64 #1 SMP Sun Feb 10 17:50:19 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux

by hand via a piece of paper):
Code: 83 3f 00 7e f9 e9 d4 fe ff ff f3 90 83 3f 00 7e f9 e9 d3 fe
Console shuts up...
