SubjectRe: Crashes during boot on 2.6.30 / 2.6.31-rc, random programs
Hello

The system seemed to happily ignore all the sysctl.conf changes and
all echo VALUE > /proc/sys/kernel/max_lock_depth

So i dug a little on the source and changed

include/linux/sched.h

# define MAX_LOCK_DEPTH 48UL

to

# define MAX_LOCK_DEPTH 96UL

and im getting no more errors. Of course, now its probably radioactive
and about to blow up, but at least it's not complaining anymore :).

Thank you for your time and help,
