You're very right indeed -- this bit was absent from -rc4-mm1's
softlockup-improve-debug-output.patch but now that I looked at your
original patch at http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/7/17/180, it becomes
obvious this was simply a mismerge issue after all :-)

[ Andrew, feel free to ignore my patch in case you just resolve
the mismerge by yourself. ]


BTW would something similar would be useful in __schedule_bug() too?
I sure think so -- I'm not sure if EIP holds anything useful there,
but CPU#, EFLAGS and the init_utsname() stuff would be definitely
helpful ...


[PATCH] sched: Use show_regs() to improve __schedule_bug() output

A full register dump along with stack backtrace would make the "scheduling
while atomic" message more helpful. Use show_regs() instead of dump_stack()
for this. We already know we're atomic in here (that is why this function
was called) so show_regs()'s atomicity expectations are guaranteed.

Also, modify the output of the "BUG: scheduling while atomic:" header a bit
to keep task->comm and task->pid together and preempt_count() after them.
