We're running Linux Kernel 2.4.26 on an 8540 ADS derivative. We're
seeing an 
"illegal instruction"  (SIGILL) exception under some circumstances 
(during a pthread_create call). We were wondering if this could be a
symptom of 
CPU29 and if there is a patch available for CPU29.

"CPU29 L1 instruction cache gets multiple entries for same line after
in MSR[IS] bit "
