Yes, I also thought this was the reason at first, but I think the IOAPIC
address refers to a physical address, while the allocated memory that memset
faults on is at virtual address fec00000, right?

Indeed, but it still gets on my nerves that they share the same address.

2.6.34-rcX has a random memory corruption bug which is showing up as
various boot failures. Yinghai has a patch.

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/963616/focus=964914

This looks pretty deterministic, It fails at exactly the same place for more
people.

On the same configuration, this will cause the same failure. Given that
virtual envs end up being the same on multiple configurations, I still think
this could be the culprit. Maybe it's a good idea to test w/ -rc3 with ipv6
compiled as module or -rc2 w/ only Yinghai's fix applied?

Thanks.
