    Hrm, I cannot reproduce this. I just successfully completed a `dbench
    16'. Can you find where they are hanging? You can get a trace via
    sysrq. You can also see where they are in the kernel via the wchan
    field of ps: "ps -ewo user,pid,priority,%cpu,stat,command,wchan" is a
    favorite of mine.

    Sure it does not happen with a stock kernel (no preempt)?

    What if you replace the printk() and dump_stack() in schedule() with a
    no-op (but not something that will optimize away the conditional, i.e.
    try a cpu_relax()).

    Oh, is the previous patch fully backed out? None of that do_exit muck
    anymore, right?

    I too am SMP with kernel preemption, dual Athlon MP.
