I don't think it's John's code. I commented out the sysfs registration code
from timekeeping_init_device() and the kernel gets further, where it crashes
on kmem_cache_create. SLAB also complains about "losing its name" and
being "of size 0".

This happens identically on 2.6.18-rc1, and 2.6.17-mm6. Greg, could it be
anything you've changed recently? I considered bisectioning -mm, but there's
been a lot of RAID problems and I'm using RAID5.
