    SubjectRe: 2.6.13-rc3 dma_timer_expiry
    From my previous message on this subject:

    I just narrowed the problem to an interaction with the tpctl tools.

    If I turn off /etc/init.d/tpctl (turn its sysV symlinks into K* links),
    I get no DMA errors. I can then reproduce the errors by
    /etc/init.d/tpctl start
    (which runs tpctl and loads the smapi and thinkpad modules), as long as
    I am in runlevel 2 or higher. If I'm in runlevel 1, I get no errors.

    I'm using Debian's tpctl package (4.17-1). With kernel 2.6.13-rc3, I'm
    using the thinkpad modules from Debian's thinkpad-source (5.8-4)
    package. With I use the 5.8-3 package for the source, but it's
    almost the same as 5.8-4.
