diff betwen good and bad config

For situation like this i have a disk with LFS and after many
compiled kernels and different configs i came to the conclusion
that with kernel difference between working and
non working kernel is few settings in .config file.

diff is attached

I will try to reduce the diff but it takes much time.
Any boot kernel parameters to try ?

I found out that machine boots with:

nohz=off highres=off nosmp

Installed Fedora 9 and for now everything is working ok.

I must also return the machine to owner so i will close the bug.
