Still have x86_4G problem with kernel 2.6.7-1.478smp



There is still a problem with 2.6.7-1.478smp and the x86 4G patch, I
think.

-478 smp kernel boots perfectly on a machine with 2GB memory.  However on
a similar 4GB machine with about the same complement of add-in cards
(same motherboard, scsi, video, etc), the -478smp kernel gets as far as
"Starting printing system" and hangs. It is still responsive to
ctrl-alt-del after a delay of 1-2 minutes.

Same results with no extra boot options or with "acpi=off"

Rebuild of kernel with x86_4G disabled fixes the problem - boots fine,
works as expected.

Not yet tested with the uniprocessor kernel.
