yes, in the last chunk of code in oprofile_add_sample()

^^^^^^^^

buffer overrrun by one entry (8192 entry by default of 8 bytes
each on x86), potentially oprofile_add_sample() add 3 events
in buffer but the protection at begin of code protect against
two addition not three

The bug is rare because add_sample use three entry in rare case,
and thing are wrong only when cpu_buf->pos == buffer_size - 2
the code is not fixed in 2.5.64, John if you have not already
a patch pending for this can you push it in your tree ?

void oprofile_add_sample(unsigned long eip, unsigned int is_kernel,
unsigned long event, int cpu)
.....
- if (cpu_buf->pos > buffer_size - 2) {
+
if (cpu_buf->pos > buffer_size - 3) {
cpu_buf->sample_lost_overflow++;
goto out;
}

ecx == cpu_bufffer->pos == buffer_size ... boom ...
