Yeah, I noticed that too, thanks for verifying this: during the 2nd bisect
run, the box locked up hard when I accessed the device-mapper. I'm using a
wrapper script to set up my luks/dm-crypt devices and still have to find
out which command exactly triggers the lockup. So, maybe the hard lockup
and the hangs are not so unrelated after all...oh well.

Thanks for your assistance, David, I really appreciate it. I'll try to
find out more about this dm-crypt thingy....
