    Thanks for testing linux-next. Very useful.

    Yes, this is exactly why we should never use BUG_ON(a || b). We don't
    know which of those three expressions triggered.

    The bug looks pretty generic, nothing very PPC-specific there. It
    might affect other architectures - we won't know until we find out wht
    caused it.

    Ho hum, I suppose I should pull the patch out of linux-next, to avoid
    disrupting other testing. This means it's going to be hard to get the
    bug fixed.
