I would suspect that it is actually looping inside the kernel, which
would mean that there indeed was no way to kill it. You could try
alt-scrolllock on the console and see if you get a register dump of
it, or maybe one of the alt-sysrq magic keys might give you some
information. But I suspect that rebooting is ultimately going to be
your only solution.

You might find out if it's looping inside the kernel by doing strace -p
<pid>, if you're stuck in a syscall, I *belive* strace'll tell you.

You wouldn't by any chance be developing a kernel module??

Paul.
