Subject[] BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000000] code: pageattr-test/207
Booting the most recent stable kernel on my workhorse machine
(Pentium D, openSUSE 10.3 32 bit userspace) produces rather a lot of
the following BUG messages:

They occur regularly in bursts of ten, separated by 30 second break.
The previous kernel:

ts@xenon:~> uname -a
Linux xenon #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Feb 18 21:05:30 CET 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

with identical config and userspace (double-checked this time ;-)
runs quite BUG-free.
