I've uploaded a patch against 2.6.21-rc4 to

http://tglx.de/private/tglx/2.6.21-rc4-trace/2.6.21-rc4-trace.patch.bz2

It contains all changes in Linus tree since -rc4 plus the two pending
fixes (http://tglx.de/private/tglx/2.6.21-rc4-pending/) along with a
backport of the latency tracer from the realtime preemption patch.

Can you please apply the patch on top of -rc4 and build it with the
configuration, which exposes this strange behaviour. Please enable also
CONFIG_LATENCY_TRACE in the Kernel hacking menu.

When the problem is visible, then run trace-it
(http://tglx.de/private/tglx/2.6.21-rc4-trace/trace-it.c) as root:

# trace-it >trace.txt

This captures roughly one second of kernel code pathes. Please stick
trace.txt into Bugzilla.

Thanks,

tglx
