I have tried the regular defconfig that comes with tree. With that one
it said kernel stack overflow when I was booting. Then I tried the
pmac_defconfig and it said that the pc had reached memory out of bounds.
Finally I took the defconfig from ben H's 2.2.15pre3 kernel and went
through the whole make config process using ben's config as a guide. The
kernel I got out of this booted successfully but as soon as I logged in
it said kernel stack overflow and froze up. I know that Ben's
configuartion works because I am using his kernel right now. So I am at
a loss as to why I can't compile a kernel that works. I just rsynced the
source right before I tried these so it is about as new as possible.

If anyone has figured this out before or has any ideas what's causing
the stack overflow let me know. Thanks.
