Hello,

Thank you for backporting this patchset to -stable. FWIW, the test 
machine I had been working with has an uptime of 4 days now, with the 
patchset in attachment applied on top of 3.2.6, so if it were 
unpractical to trim it down further you can find solace in that it does 
not break anything.

I'll be glad to help test any new patchset as well!

Also, the issue started before 2.6.30, 2.6.39 had the same issue, and 
probably 2.6.38 even I did not test it for a while. 2.6.37 was the last 
known "safe" release WRT this bug.
