SubjectRe: kernel oops and panic in acpi_atomic_read under 2.6.39.3. call trace included
From
Hi Don,

This system has Westmere cpus in it. I can disable ghes completely if you
think that is best, sure. I also want to make sure this problem is solved
for everyone going forward, so our customer can upgrade their system in
the future without problems.

The latest patch from Rafael did not resolve the problem unfortunately. I
posted another message just before this with the current call trace.
Unless he has another patch or suggestion, I will try rebuilding with ghes
disabled completely.

Thanks,
Rick
