No, 2.6.23.X was the last working kernel without this problem, the bug shows
up with 2.6.24-rcX. I just wanted to emphasis, that I don't think that it has
something to do with the hpet stuff. Kernel 2.6.24-rcX is unpatched, because
the hrt stuff has been merged.

Here it is modular and I enabled CONFIG_EXT2_FS_XIP, but the same is enabled
on 2.6.23.X. Maybe it is related to libata? I additionally discovered, that
the problem disappears for a few seconds when I press the eject button for
the ultra bay of my thinkpad. Pressing the button unregisters the cdrom drive
to be able to replace it with a hard drive or a battery. Maybe this bug is
thinkpad relared?
