The same issue happened on our system. Sometimes vboxgetty gets stuck in
state D on a debian stable system (2.6.32). I just applied your patch to
that kernel and hope the problem went away. Please remind me to report
back in one to two weeks if I didn't already report whether the hangs
are fixed. Is something except for a test on a productive system missing
to get this fix into 32-stable?
