    After receiving Alex' .config and gcc version (3.2.3), I've been
    able to decipher this. current->mm is NULL in the kapmd task. The call

    load_LDT(&current->mm->context); /* This does lldt */

    in fix_processor_context() computes the address of context as
    (current->mm)+0x7c, which is 0x7c. load_LDT_nolock() dereferences
    0x7c+0x14 (void *segments = pc->ldt) and the oops follows.

    As to _why_ kapmd's current->mm is NULL, I don't know. It isn't
    when I test APM suspend in 2.5.69-bk. A lot of code dereferences
    current->mm without checking, so I guess current->mm==NULL is a bug.
