I saw this issue below in the digest and wondered if there were any
other problems with 2.4.22um.
I had been using using 2.4.20um6 for some time without many problems and
went to upgrade the kernel to 2.4.22(I left the rootfs exactly the same
except for re-installing modules...I suppose that is ok) and found some
strange instability...it would boot but when I went to do anything in
the console window it would crash. Debugging it was difficult - it
seemed to receive many signals (I set gdb to ignore USR1) a SEGV which
could be continued then finally an IRQ 2 which it could not handle.
I started to suspect that I needed to regenerate the rootfs but I can't
think of a reason why I should have to.
thanks for any info.
ps. is there a new patch with the /dev/kmem fix? thanks

Have it ignore SEGV as well. Then your debugging environment should be clean.
I need stack traces if I'm going to debug crashes.

I released it yesterday.
