Bad from which point of view? From hardware or software?
How could I check you idea?
This is main machine I use for testing of mpsafe locking for sppp(4), cx(4),
ctau(4), cp(4). Since this is a singles SMP machine that has ISA bus that I
have. And I really hope to get these changes to 5.3.
Fixing this bug is a part of my daily job for now. I'll try to spend
to find out reason of this problem by my self (hour or two every day). But
since this part of code was out of my interest before it would be very
So if you have an idea what to check and were to look based on your
knowledge of code I'll be glad to move this way.
