Aneesh found cause of this oops I think... Aneesh, would you send the
fix to Holger? Thanks.

Sadly, the output seems to be truncated (mainly, the kjournald process
is missing, which is probably the root cause of the hang). So could you
have a look whether /var/log/messages doesn't contain the dump of all
processes? And if no, then could you do "echo w >/proc/sysrq-trigger"
please? That will dump only blocked processes which should fit in the log
buffer. You can also increase log buffer size in kernel config but that
shouldn't be needed. Thanks.
