SubjectRe: [Bug 15076] System panic under load with clockevents_program_event

That's a really weird one. The system is 50 min up and running and out
of the blue it crashes in clockevents_program_event(). This function
has been called a couple of thousand times before that point.

The only way to crash there is when *dev is pointing into nirwana. dev
comes from

int tick_program_event(ktime_t expires, int force)
struct clock_event_device *dev = __get_cpu_var(tick_cpu_device).evtdev;

according to the callchain. At this point nothing fiddles with
tick_cpu_device.evtdev, so I suspect some really nasty memory
corruption going on.

okias, can you please disable highmem support and verify whether the
problem persists ?
