I don't know what vanilla-2.6.31-r2 is, but I assume it's based on either
2.6.31.3 or 2.6.31.2.

The most likely explanation is that your earlier test from which you
concluded that the revert did fix the problem was incorrect. It seems
unlikely that some other stable commit interferes here.

So basically we're back where we started.

How reproducible is the error for you? Do you see it every time or not?
If it is reliably reproducible, can you think of any explanation why your
earlier test was a success while we now see that the revert does not help?

Does the error *only* occur during gcc compilation, or was that just the
simplest way to reproduce it? Does it always occur at the same point during
the compilation or does it vary?
Can you create a test case that does not require doing the whole
compilation, but only executes the step that triggers the error?

If you can find a reliable and fairly quick way to reproduce the error, I
would suggest doing a bisection.

Jeff, Tejun: do you have any ideas what could cause this issue to suddenly
appear or how to debug/instrument it?

Cheers,
FJP
