    thanks! That really narrows it down.

    I suspect it's the patch below. That patch (from John) relaxes the
    affinities of IRQ threads: if there are /proc/irq/*/smp_affinity entries
    that have multiple bits set an IRQ thread is allowed to jump from one
    CPU to another while it is executing a IRQ-handler. It _should_ be fine
    but i'd not be surprised if that caused breakage ...

    if this is the cause of the crash, would be hard for you trying to
    figure out _which_ IRQ thread is so sensitive to affinity?
