I tried to sit this one out, but when -rc2 did not magicially fix it I
started a git bisect, this is what I got:

* a546498f3bf9aac311c66f965186373aee2ca0b0 is the first bad commit

commit a546498f3bf9aac311c66f965186373aee2ca0b0
Author: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
Date: Wed Mar 7 16:48:45 2012 +1100

powerpc: Call do_page_fault() with interrupts off

Thanks,
Christian.
