Description of problem:
The bad stuff starts with:
dev.c: In function 'dev_getbyhwaddr'
dev.c:546: Internal Error. Segmentation fault.
Encountered this while making a kernel with source 2.4.16
"make bzImage" will halt in the above dir
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run 'make xconfig', turned on option for "development and/or incomplete
code/drivers", config as attached file small.txt
2.do a 'make dep' - no errors
3.do a 'make clean'
4.do a 'time make bzImage'
Actual Results: 4.5 minutes into 'time make bzImage' --> Segmentation
Expected Results: Expected the kernel to finish compile
This is on a machine running whatever kernel ships with Redhat 7.2
The machine is an Intel Celeron @550, on an ASUS CUSI-FX mobo w/512M
physical RAM, 8K shared for VGA in bios.

I cannot seem to repro this anymore. Less aggressive memory timings in my
machine's bios settings make this problem vanish. Sorry for the wasted
