Cool. Strangely enough I don't see this in 2.3.99pre8, only in 2.4.
The problem with userspace executing zero at random times is obviously

Hm. This bit above puzzles me, because I thought the kernel was
either compiled with -fomit-frame-pointer, or with sufficient
optimization that the frame pointer would be omitted anyway.

Wow. That is some unbelievably screwed up register spilling. In fact
I suspect that this may be a reload bug.
