Subject: 2.6.24-rc6-mm1 - crash in tick_sched_timer/update_process_times

I seem to be on a roll here... :)

X86_64 kernel, Dell Latitude D820, Core2 T7200 processor...

(Yes, I know it's tainted.  If I *have* to, I'll try to get an untainted one,
which will be a pain - the oss 'nv' driver is a tad busticated on my box at
the moment).

Took me a bunch of hours to find a way to repeat this one, but it seems
pretty consistent - I exit an 'Eterm' process and ka-blam.  First guess
I have is that we hit a race and the timer popped right in the middle of
a process exiting and we try to update process times on an already-defunct
process table entry?

This ring any bells or brown-paper-bag D'Oh!s before I go bisecting?
