Hi Andrew,

Kernel BUG over x86_64 (AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 844).

Similar kernel Bug was reported for 2.6.23-rc2-mm1
at and the
mm-dirty-balancing-for-tasks.patch was dropped from 2.6.23-rc2-mm2.
And the same patch is in this -mm version, suspect whether is it the
same patch triggering this Bug.

BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 11s! [events/0:15]
CPU 0:
