RE: [Linux-ia64] uni-processor kernel on SMP machine

Are you using a kernel with ptc.g enabled?  A problem similar to the one you
are seeing has shown up B1-based systems running kernels that include ptc.g.

The system appears to hang right after printing "POSIX conformance testing
by UNIFIX", i.e. just before the creation of the init thread.  The kernel
is pretty locked up, alt-sysrq doesn't work.  I have not really tried to
debug it yet, so that is about all I can say at the moment.
