Ooops, wrong patch. I have a labyrinth of bitkeeper-trees here, all looking
almost the same.

The real patch contains cleaned up HZ-ifdefs.

Regarding the gcc "workaround" I said:

"I don't really know how to make clear it's not a gcc problem. But if it was,
why doesn't it crash on pc and 1.0 xboxen? And why does it crash on kernels
compiled with 2.95, with or without optimization? I really wish I had the
explaination to this problem."

Or as Christoph answered: "Oh well, stupid crappy hardware..."
