I think I know your problem. SSE code gets executed (CVTSI2SS is an SSE
instruction), but your kernel isn't compiled to support SSE which is why
it's not listed on the flags line of /proc/cpuinfo. So you get illegal
instruction. I had the same thing after upgrading from Duron to Athlon XP.

I suppose recompiling your kernel is the best solution.
