SubjectOops 2.4.5-pre5 - problem with threads and hdd

System: SMP BP6 2x480 Celeron 192MB IMB30GB G400

Oops occured while I'm tunning multithreaded application
while recreating new thread.

Lately I'm having a lot of complete deadlocks also
(this lock has been the lucky one as I could actually report it)

Usual symptoms - doing heavy disk transfers with caching thread
Before my application was not that fast - but as the speed goes up,
hard-locking in kernel seems to be appearing more and more offten.
I'm using around 7 threads and continuously adding new broadcast,
communication. But during last few days I've got up-to 7 deadlocks in a
day -
this is really becoming borring - I've also tested 2.4.5-ac9 &
both these kernel also lock with similiar conditions.
For more details just ask me (and it's the hardware fault,
nor the problem of RTL3.0 as -ac9 & -ac13 were both used without this
patch and were locking similary)

Here is an Oops

ksymoops 2.3.7 on i686 2.4.5-pre5-RTL3.0. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)

-m /usr/src/linux/ (default)
