I'm having very difficult time imagining how 22b737f4 could have
affected this as the patch is identical transformation of the previous
code. Also, 833af842 was released with 2.6.32 and stayed that way, so
it really looks like a memory overrun / random corruption thing. Can
you please retry with kmalloc debug stuff turned on?

Thanks.
