I got the similar results with the 20000501 toolchain come with the
0825 RedHat ia64 beta distribution. I don't think it is a purely
compiler issue since the same kernel, which works on A2 stepping,
failed to boot on B1 stepping. I suspect some interaction between
the ACPI stuff and the interrupts. It seems on B1 stepping, the
kernel will get interrupts very early on in the ACPI code.
