   Ok, update and try again.

   The callout timer module was init'ing using SI_SUB_CPU / SI_ORDER_FIRST,
   which put it at odds with the initialization of the SMP subsystem.
   Recent completely unrelated changes to conf/files caused the linker
   to reorder the callout timer module's init code in front of the SMP
   init code, revealing the bug.
   I would like both you and Scott to update your systems to the latest
   and see if they boot now.
   Scott, please continue to use that MPT patch set I sent you, as well.

Will do!


Everything is back to normal.  A kernel as of 10 minutes ago is now booting!

Thanks Matt!!!
