I think most likely it would crash on 2.6.18. Keith mannthey had reported
a different crash on 2.6.18-rc4-mm2 when this patch was introduced first
time. Following is the link to the thread.

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=115629369729911&w=2

Following is the backtrace he had reported.
