The biggest difference between 2.4.5-pre3 and my current tree is
(except from linux maintstream changes) the new MM layer and
merging of all the linuxppc_2_4_devel work.

It would be helpful for me if you could both try out the current
_2_4_devel tree and tell me if it exhibit the same symtoms. Well,
I beleive sleep won't work on the iBook, so that cannot be tested,
but at least Michel can try it out and tell me.

I currently fail to see what in my recent changes could explain
such weird/random crashes. As far as the iBook is concerned, it
may well be yet another HW issue with a device playing mad
tricks to memory, but I still doubt it.
