Can you enable frame pointers to get an accurate stack trace? x86 can
be accurate without, but I don't think this was ever implemented for
Because I'm not sure if below cfq_close_cooperator is being called
again, or if it's just garbage (as I guess). Anyway, it's still likely
that the crash is on hweight32.

Also, it'd be interesting to diff your configuration with the one used
by people the patch works for. Say,
$ grep HWEIGHT .config
(if there are any CFLAGS set in ARcH_HWEIGHT_CFLAGS, that would be a
problem as far as I see).
