Subject[2.6.0-test5-bk13] SIGSTOPping tar extraction process causes other I/O processes to block

I was extracting a large tarball of 2 MB image files and running and
apt-get remove at the same time, realized the disk was thrashing back
and forth, and decided to suspend the tar process until the apt-get was
finished. When I suspended the tar, apt-get never finished. Right-alt
SysRQ (SysRQ-T) dumped the following traces for the processes in

I hope this is enough information to be useful. If not, I can try
reproducing the issue. The apt-get process finished properly when I
foregrounded (resumed) the tar process.

Possibly useful portions of .config (full .config available on request):

# CONFIG_SMP is not set
# CONFIG_PREEMPT is not set
