SubjectRe: 2.6.24-git4+ regression
Ingo,

any progress here? I've tried to revert this patch:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=67e9fb2a39a1d454218d50383094940982be138f

as it was marked as suspicious patch in this case
(http://www.uwsg.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0801.3/1665.html)

but in such a case, kernel 2.6.24-git13 does oops at startup in sched_slice.

I think this is really *big* regression in 2.6.24 kernel.
