My machine(s) indeed run SuSE-7.2, but with standard self compiled Kernel
(now 2.4.16) on a Dual Pentium-Pro SMP machine.
The problem was the same with older Versions of SuSE and older SMP Kernels
(2.4), all with reiser filesystems.

It mainly occures when I was forced to "Hard-" power off due to system hangs
by cutting off Power. I suspect BIOS/PCI/APIC Interrupt-share Problems for
the hangs on my old Mainboard hp Vectra XU6/200. During boot I get always:
<3>BIOS bug, IO-APIC#0 ID is 16 in the MPC table!...
<3>... fixing up to 0. (tell your hw vendor)
<3>BIOS bug, IO-APIC#0 ID 0 is already used!...
<3>... fixing up to 2. (tell your hw vendor)
<6>...changing IO-APIC physical APIC ID to 2 ... ok.
Luckily this happens pretty seldom, once in a couple of months.
