Same for me on one of our single Xeon with 2.6.7-rc1. Using SysRq-T I
was able to track it somehow down to the following situation:

modprobe D C201AD20 0 3735 2415 (NOTLB)
f6b51f0c 00000082 00000000 c201ad20 c201a0a0 00008124 00000002 00000000
f7c03000 f6b51ee4 f8bda434 c04b5dc0 c201ad20 00000000 00000000 8ce9c0c0
000f431a c03b8d80 f75fccd0 f75fce80 00000246 00000003 f6b50000 f7c03000
Call Trace:
[<f8bdb46d>] ipmi_register_smi+0x22a/0x386 [ipmi_msghandler]
[<f8b570a6>] init_one_smi+0x1e6/0x4c2 [ipmi_si]

[<c0137910>] sys_init_module+0x116/0x24d
[<c0106053>] syscall_call+0x7/0xb

modprobe hangs at linux-2.6.7-rc1/drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_msghandler.c:1727
wait_event((*intf)->waitq, ((*intf)->curr_channel>=IPMI_MAX_CHANNELS));

This event should be fired by channel_handler(), but isn't for some
unknown reason. I verified this by adding some printk() there, which
wheren't shown.

When I tried a 2.4 kernel with the patches from, I
was somehow able to use IPMI, but got into problems later.

Any idea, what I can do to track the problem further down?
