Subject[OOPS] in kdb v2.3 on top of 2.5.44

Hi Keith, list,

I tried patching the 2.5.44 vanilla kernel with the 2.3 you released for
2.5.43. The patching had only a few rejects, which were completely
trivial, but perhaps this mis-match of kernel to patch version caused the
oops, but here it is (starting from me successfully executing a few
commands inside the debugger):

[ snip kernel boot and beginning of kdb session ]
