Sounds like you're building with GCC 3.  I don't know its status on
HP-PA, but I had serious trouble getting a stable kernel with GCC 3 on
sparc64 when I initially moved to ext3.  I now build with egcs 2.92.11
(available as egcs64 in Debian), and it's solid as a rock, to wit:

  $ uname -a
  Linux blorp 2.4.17 #1 Mon Jan 7 11:54:07 GMT 2002 sparc64 unknown
  $ uptime
   13:47:10 up 42 days,  1:14,  7 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

I rarely got more than a week's uptime with a GCC 3 kernel, even with
the tiny loads my Ultra 5 shoulders.
