In recent kernels, I had a hard hang in -git6 on my Fedora8-based
Dell D610 (x86, UP) - and since at least -git4 I can't shutdown my
Oracle 11.1 instance, with the VKTM thread remaining in R state,
while taking up no CPU at all:

[root@sandman ~]# ps ax | grep vktm
3211 ? Rs 0:00 ora_vktm_t111
additionally, VKTM is

- non-straceable (strace hangs)
- non-gdb'able (gdb hangs)
- non-pstack'able (pstack returns empty)
- non-killable (kill -9 doesn't kill it)

echo'ing 't' in /proc/sysrq-trigger, I have (2.6.24-git8):

Once I'm done with a largish FTP I'll try and find out where
this exactly began.
