Kevin, could you give git-bisect a shot?  if you have two kernel
versions or -rcX tags that work and don't work, then you can use bisect
to help find the patch that causes it.

you can search for from:torvalds and git-bisect to see lots of
instructions from Linus on how to do it.  If you have a fast machine and
a few hours and an automatable test it can go really fast, probably less
than 12 rebuilds.

Good Luck,
