These patches introduce a regression on ARM. Whereas before, I have
/proc/*/wchan populated with non-zero values, with these patches they
_all_ contain "0":

root@clearfog21:~# cat /proc/*/wchan
0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000root@clearfog21:~#

I'll try to investigate what is going on later today.
