SubjectSerious reproducible 2.4.x kernel hang

Hi,

I've just managed to reproduce this personally on 2.4.0. I've had a report
that 2.4.1 is also affected. Both myself and the other person who
reproduced this have SMP i686 machines, which may or may not be relevant.

To reproduce, all you need to do is get my vsftpd ftp server:
ftp://ferret.lmh.ox.ac.uk/pub/linux/vsftpd-0.0.9.tar.gz

It runs from inetd. Connect using the Linux command line ftp client, to
localhost, and simply press CTRL-C. If it matters, I'm using RH7.0
software.

After the first iteration of this, I'm left with:
[chris@localhost chris]$ ps auwx | grep ftp
root 713 99.9 0.4 1416 592 ? SN 22:01 38:17 vsftpd
/etc/vsftpd.conf
nobody 715 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? ZN 22:01 0:00 [vsftpd
<defunct>]

As you can see, the root process is burning 100% of one of my CPUs. It
_cannot_ be killed with kill -9!

From Alt-Sysrq-T:
Jan 30 22:01:52 localhost kernel: vsftpd S 00000000 860 713 670
715
(NOTLB)

(L-TLB)
Jan 30 22:01:52 localhost kernel: Call Trace: [do_exit+628/672]
[system_call+51/56]

As we can see, the 100% CPU broken process has got stuck in a blocking
read() on a unix socket.

If I repeat the ftp connect/CTRL-C process again, I get a totally dead
machine.

Hope this is sufficient info. I'll try and write a minimal test case.

Cheers
Chris
