SubjectRe: 2.6.13-rc3 dma_timer_expiry
From my previous message on this subject:

I just narrowed the problem to an interaction with the tpctl tools.

If I turn off /etc/init.d/tpctl (turn its sysV symlinks into K* links),
I get no DMA errors. I can then reproduce the errors by
/etc/init.d/tpctl start
(which runs tpctl and loads the smapi and thinkpad modules), as long as
I am in runlevel 2 or higher. If I'm in runlevel 1, I get no errors.

I'm using Debian's tpctl package (4.17-1). With kernel 2.6.13-rc3, I'm
using the thinkpad modules from Debian's thinkpad-source (5.8-4)
package. With I use the 5.8-3 package for the source, but it's
almost the same as 5.8-4.
