Not quite so, removal of REGPARM does not correct the problem for all users, myself included -- and beside that Zander's patch to 5341 should workaround REGPARM to leave it enabled.

I am intrigued by your system working with 4KSTACKS as it has never worked for one of my builds (and I have built somewhere around 24 separate versions / configs since 4KSTACKS showed up in FC2 Rawhide kernels). REGPARM has worked (with said patch). Clearly this is not a cut and dry situation on either side of these options. Honestly, I would like to understand more.

What chipsets do you have, what video card / bios?

$-> cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model: GeForce4 Ti 4400
IRQ: 7
Video BIOS:
Card Type: AGP

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV25 [GeForce4 Ti 4400] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: VISIONTEK: Unknown device 003c
Flags: bus master, VGA palette snoop, 66Mhz, medium devsel, latency 248, IRQ 7

00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 82850 850 (Tehama) Chipset AGP Bridge (rev 04) (prog-if 00 [Normal decode])
Flags: bus master, 66Mhz, fast devsel, latency 64
Bus: primary=00, secondary=01, subordinate=01, sec-latency=64
