I have 2.6.10-rc3 booting just fine on a 8270 and 8280 as well as 8250
and 8260.

Don't know why it would die there but the calcualtions for the clocks on
an 8250 are different than that of the 8270.  If it is working on the
8250 then you may be doing the calculations wrong on the 8270.  Other
than the clocks it should be the same.
