I'll throw it in.

I did another bisect (mainly because the last one gave a commit that
obviously seemed bogus and Ingo ask me to)

3f2aa307c4d26b4ed6509d0a79e8254c9e07e921 is first bad commit
commit 3f2aa307c4d26b4ed6509d0a79e8254c9e07e921
Author: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

sched: Disable NEW_FAIR_SLEEPERS for now

I'm about to try a linus latest kernel with just this one patch
reverted.
