Unfortunately I tried it on a DELL 3250 (Dual Itanium 2) running RH AS 2.1
updated to 2.4.18-e.31smp and also got a reboot!

Hello,

Intrigued by a problem reported by a customer (tar cf /dev/st0 /) and
remembering
another issue I had, I tried to investigate a bit and found the following.

On Linux/ia64 when you do cat /proc/kcore, the system just reboots in a
couple
of seconds (with RHAS 2.1 std kernel, updated kernel - 2.4.18-e.31) or even
with a 
vanilla 2.4.21 + david's patches.
On Linux/i386, no such problem. As I have seen it on zx2000, rx4670, I think
it's
not an isolated case. 

Could you confirm on other type of machines ? And more smarter people could
even 
probably provide a patch.

Thanks in advance,
Bruno.
