That indeed is 2.6.25 kernel. I guess you are talking about commit
442258e2ff69 here. If so, the reporter is definitely using the kernel
containing this commit, and the lockups still trigger.

Seems that my patch is papering over the real bug (someone enabling
interrupts somewhere) indeed, but I can't seem to be able to find such
