A little OT for the devel list, but I did want to warn people with  
AMD Athlon X2's on a nForce4 chipset (I think Isaac has one).  I just  
bumped my kernel from 2.6.13 to 2.6.14 and everything went bad.   
Video speed was all over the place, with audio going crazy trying to  
match it.  Turns out the clock would start running 2-3 times normal  
speed when both procs were under load.  I resolved it by adding  
"notsc clock=pmtmr" to my kernel boot line in grub.  notsc alone  
should have worked, but my kernel disallowed that option.
