Thanks for the patch!  I'm happy to take it into my test kernels and
to champion it for RHEL4.  But, I need a little more of your help.
Would you mind opening a bugzilla for this issue?

Please open a bugzilla and let me know what its number is (or assign

P.S.  Go ahead and attach your patch to the bugzilla as well!

Extra info: this patch is now working on my ASUS A8N-VM CSM motherboard with an
AMD64 3500+ (in 32 bits mode).

I will let this box run for a few weeks and see if it keeps running. I keep you
