Michal has reported a similar thing in recent -mm's.
sched-fix-idle-load-balancing-in-softirqd-context was added in
2.6.21-rc2-mm1.

I'll drop sched-fix-idle-load-balancing-in-softirqd-context.patch and
sched-fix-idle-load-balancing-in-softirqd-context-fix.patch and, as a
consequence, sched-dynticks-idle-load-balancing-v3.patch.

Thanks for doing the bisect - it really helps.
