Ummm.....it would help if I knew a little more about what you are using.
Like, what kind of board and the kernel configuration?

I would see a similar problem when I would configure IDE and not
configure PCI.  This is because the IDE probes (and other I/O in/out
operations) map to real memory locations and tend to write on top of
kernel data structures.  This is my only guess without more information.
