the soft lock it seems was due to a mutex assert in the TCP code. Now i
see that you have the ipv6 module loaded. Would it be possible to
disable ipv6 briefly, to see whether there are other issues?

hm, the keyboard should be working - i have not seen any specific
keyboard problems with PREEMPT_REALTIME enabled (except in the very
early stages of this feature). So it must be something else. Is this a
PS2 or an USB keyboard?

this assert says that a write_unlock() was done before the mutex was
initialized - which is a no-no. Note that the stock kernel does not do
this checking and there's a chance that it has a true bug here which it
ignores silently. The more likely scenario is that the kernel mutex code
somewhere changed an assumption which broke the code. I'll try to
reproduce this.
