    Bisecting this bug is very inefficient, but I've managed to narrow it
    down a bit more.

    The log so far:
    git-bisect start
    # good: [b663c6fd98c9cf586279db03cec3257c413efd00] nfsd: fix oops on
    access from high-numbered ports

    git-bisect good bde1709aaa98f5004ab1580842c422be18eb4bc3

    This leaves these commits according to 'git bisect visualize':
    [NET]: Fix tbench regression in 2.6.25-rc1
    sched: simplify sched_slice()
    sched: fix fair sleepers
    sched: fix overload performance: buddy wakeups
    sched: fix calc_delta_mine()
    sched: fix update_load_add()/sub() <-- currently bisecting, seems to be
    sched: min_vruntime fix
    sched: fix race in schedule()
    Merge branch 'for-linus' of
    firewire: fw-ohci: shut up false compiler warning on PPC32
    [SCTP]: Fix local_addr deletions during list traversals.

    Hope this helps / Richard
