Some time after rc1, things appeared in a mess - at least I didn't have
much luck figuring out what was going on when I looked. Admittedly, being
very ill at the time I didn't spend much effort on it. Either way things
were churning enough that there seemed to be enough going on without adding
one-zonelist to the mix.

I've rebased the patches to mm-broken-out-2007-11-06-02-32. However, the
vanilla -mm and the one with onezonelist applied are locking up in the
same manner. I'm way too behind at the moment to guess if it is a new bug
or reported already. At best, I can say the patches are not making things
any worse :) I'll go through the archives in the morning and do a bit more
testing to see what happens.

In case this is familiar to people, the lockup I see is;
