    I applied the modified patch you sent at 04:51 plus the above and
    had to change dump_stack() to show_stack(NULL) in sched.c due to

    kernel/kernel.o: In function `schedule':
    kernel/kernel.o(.text+0xf13): undefined reference to `dump_stack'

    I used plain vanilla 2.5.35 to patch against.

    I booted that so-patched kernel and it got much further than before,
    up to where syslogd was able to write some stuff to /var/log/messages.

    There were many instances of "error: scheduling while non-atomic!",
    and the traces were similar. Here is a decoded one:

    [steven@spc5 linux-2.5.35]$ ksymoops -K -L -O -v vmlinux -m <non-atomic.txt
    ksymoops 2.4.4 on i686 2.5.35. Options used
    -v vmlinux (specified)
    -K (specified)
    -L (specified)
    -O (specified)
    -m (specified)
