What kind of CPU does that machine have?

It's a basic Pentium 4 running at 2.8 GHz.  The motherboard is Intel D865PERL.  Basic vanilla genuine Intel hardware -- all Linux kernels run on it but not this one.

Matthew Garrett pointed me at a patch for a regression in ACPI yesterday.  I've started a scratch build with this patch applied.  Could those with an impacted machine please try this kernel when it finishes building and let us know the results?

My apologies, I pasted the wrong link to the scratch build.  This is the one that should be tested:

This should be fixed now.
