Do you get the smae error if you `make bootstrap' again?  It seems
not, because bootstrap-lean does exactly the same, but gets you a
different error.  This is most often an indication of faulty
hardware.  Some people report this kind of error in cases of excessive
overclocking, broken memory, broken caches, etc.  Other than fixing
the broken hardware, sometimes disabling the L2 cache helps, with a
corresponding performance penalty.
