It's a corrupted kernel stack, or that's what it looks like. What devices
do you have?

(1.3.97 changed:
- aztcd (support for CyCDROM)
- floppy (mostly changes to move some functions to arch-dep stuff, but..)
- teles ISD driver
- depca network driver
- totally new in2000 driver
- minor sound driver changes, they do look like bugfixes
- ufs filesystem
- filesystem read-ahead code tweak)

Can you try to pinpoint which of these are the problem?
