Subjectutrace, RCU and ia64
Hi, Roland, Andrew.

Something really sick is going on with combination of utrace, RCU and ia64.

Below are quickly reproducable oops happenning on 8-way SMP,
my lame-o attempts to decode it, and test program itself.

I checked 2.6.21-rc5 which was OK,
2.6.21-rc5 + linux-2.6.21-current-utrace.patch which was bad, and
2.6.21-rc5-mm1 which was also bad.

Looks like place corresponds to function call in rcu_do_batch()

list = rdp->donelist;
while (list) {
next = list->next;
prefetch(next);
list->func(list);
list = next;
