Unfortunately, I cannot revert this patch alone from upstream git.
But I consistently see
upstream git: Always produces this oops on reboot
checkout of 38d47c1b: Always produces this oops on reboot
checkout of 94aca1da (one patch before the above commit): Reboots fine
without the oops.

This is petty specific to the particular userspace, looks like.
I only see this on SLES10 installation. Also, I need a non-root user
logged in at least once after boot through X to see this problem. I was
always seeing this as I had autologin on local terminal and was remotely
rebooting the system. If I just boot to init 3 or boot to init 5 with no
user logged in or boot to init 5 with root logged in, I do not see this
problem.

Thanks,
Venki
