SubjectRe: sky2 panic in 2.6.32.1 under load (new oops)
More results... Seems that this is related to the tty (or maybe vt or 
maybe console) driver. I had disabled mingetty on tty1 as a workaround
to a Fedora/KDE issue. When I reenabled it, I was then able to recreate
this problem (sky2) in runlevel 3.

Retesting, it seems that the following conditions must be met in order
for the interrupt errors to happen:

1) mingetty running on tty1 before the start of the test run
2) High sustained incoming load - 25MB/sec or more (as reported by nethogs)
3) I've only been able to recreate this using samba & a Windows 7 backup
- but there could be other triggers

As it happens, much of my other data all came down to mingetty starting
or not starting on tty1 at specific points of test preparation. At this
point I can recreate 100% of the time if I ensure that there is a
mingetty running on tty1, regardless of runlevel; and I can not recreate
100% of the time when there is no mingetty running on tty1 at the start
of the test. The results do not change if I start or stop mingetty on
tty1 during the test. It's possible that X running on tty1 may also
trigger the issue, but I haven't tested that. Note that running mingetty
on the other tty's does not affect the outcome of the test. The test is
also unaffected if I chvt to or away from tty1 before the test. I do not
have to be logged in at the console (on any vt) to trigger the issue.

In a nutshell, to recreate: make sure there is a mingetty running on
tty1, blast traffic into the system on eth0 (sky2).
