    Yes, it fixes my test_wp_bit oops. But NOW, when booting 2.6.2-rc1-mm3 (which
    i pathed removing -funit-at-a-time and the wp_but oops patch) I get an oops
    derefrencing null pointer in blkdev_reread_part.

    I booted normal and with vga=ask acpi=off
    Here is a close approxamation of what I wrote down by hand.

    raid1: raid set md1 active..(blah blah)
    Unable to handle null dereference at virtual address 0000008c025b893
    *pde = 00000000
    oops = 0000 [#1]
    PREEMPT SMP
    CPU: 0
    EIP: 0060 Not Tainted VLI
    EIP is at blkdev_reread_part+0x13/0x80

    Trace
    [<c025bdfe>] blkdev_ioctl+0x30e/0x3b5
    [<co17f426>] wake_up_inode+0x6/0x30 (might be 0xb.. cant read my writing)
    [<co1bb696>] io_ctl_by_bdev+0x26/0x40
    [<c0307e53>] do_md_run+0x493/0x5c0
    .....trace continues about 20-30 functions

    Let me know if you need more (or more accurate) debugging info. I am very
    sorry if I have copied something down incorrectly. If I have, I guess its a
    great time to learn how to set a up serial console :)
