Not sure I understand but the above stack points to a preemptible
context (copy_process). My stack was different and it looks preemptible as well.
free_thread_stack calls vfree_atomic unconditionally. So I am not sure
why do you think this is a bug?

Anyway, now that I am looking at Andrew's tree I can see [1] which
doesn't have this_cpu_ptr. So I am not sure where this this_cpu_ptr came
from. Maybe the previous version of the patch which has shown up in the
linux-next and Andrew has picked up [2] in the meantime. /me confused
