I was getting something like that on reboot a few days ago, I think it
was with 2.6.1-mm2. I had to move on before debugging it fully, but
the impression I got (maybe vile calumny, sue me Rusty) was that the
new kthread_create for 2.6.1-mm's ksoftirqd was leaving it vulnerable
to shutdown kill, whereas other things (RCU in my traces) still needed
it around and assumed its task address still valid.

Hope this helps instead of misleading,
Hugh
