Paul's devel branch on Lombard?

I'm using Pauls' stable branch (2.2.12) from his rsync archives
on my Lombard PowerBook.  I've wanted to use the power management
features in the new kernels, but I have yet to build a kernel that
fully boots.  

As of today's kernel sources, it boots but pulls a Machine Check in 
one of my init scripts.  Each time I boot it, it does in a different place.
The attached dump is failing on the "exim" script ("S20exim").

I'm using the same kernel configuration I'm using for 2.2.12 (which
works great from the SCSI to the modem to the framebuffer to USB),
but 2.2.12 doesn't offer sleep mode.  :)

A hand-typed dump appears below.  I'll send my .config if it would

Machine check in kernel mode.
