This stack looks very much like the problem with scsi queue plugging
behaviour and the removal of blk_empty_queue. It is not always hit, there
could easily be something in ac that changed the timing.

[If so] this is not a problem in the ac kernel, even though you only hit
it after adding the ac patch.

James B sent in a fix, it's included in the current bk tree, the changelog
says:

fix scsi queue plugging behaviour

Following recent changes removing blk_queue_empty(), we were
incorrectly plugging the queue some times (most often as part of
the SCSI scan process). This was causing a non-deterministic panic
in the scan code because a destroyed queue was sometimes being
unplugged and run.

Or see this for log and patch:

http://linux.bkbits.net:8080/linux-2.5/cset@1.971.103.27?nav=index.html|ChangeSet@-2d
The patch won't apply cleanly on top of 2.5.67.
