Thanks you for your time.

Below are my answers.

I did not try that yet since I need this machine-- and this patch
to work form home. My plan is to update both my hardware and my
kernel but I wanted to report this bug anyway.

Also I can also experience the same problem but with diffrent
traces in syslog.

I don't know if this is another bug or the same one. The behavior
is the same-- my X server crashes suddenly and the kernel seems to
be in a bad state because sometimes after that the machine reboots.

I tried that this afternoon and everything seems to be fine on
this side.
