I've been trying to run a 2.6.16 kernel
with the appropriate gcov patches. The stock kernel boots on a SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server 9 system just fine, but after patching the the source
with the gcov-2.6.16 patch, the kernel doesn't boot. It hits a segfault
that somehow gets trapped in an infinite loop, which scrolls off the screen,
but is the same few lines printed out repeatedly. I saw the same behavior
with the 2.6.16 sources and the 126.96.36.199 sources when patched.
Is this a simple problem? I can attach
a serial line if further debug is needed.
