For what it's worth, a couple of us here got bitten by this every now
and then a couple of weeks back and it was on Opterons.  From what we
saw, it might have been dependent on the toolchain or something of the

stable and it would crash.  I upgraded to Debian testing and it went
away.  It started happening after c/s 11131 within about 100 changesets
or so.  It seemed really obscure and not widespread so we just moved

Do you recall / can you check the gcc and ld versions on both
versions? also, if you still have access to the build machine with
Debian stable, could you please see if applying the patch I posted
earlier in the thread to back out the vmlinux.lds changes solves the

gcc 3.3.5-13 and 3.4.3-13sarge1
ld 2.15-6

Unfortunately, I upgraded my build machine when trying to get past the
problem.  I see from the rest of the thread that the problem has been
more or less fixed.
