Well, since I'm a big believer in dogfooding, I always run my own
kernel even during the merge window. I don't reboot between each pull,
but I try to basically reboot daily.

And it's entirely possible that the eventual "bad page flags" error -
which is what I think triggered the eventual hang - is something else
that came in during this merge window.

I haven't actually gotten the -mm changes from Andrew yet, but it did
happen in the btrfs kworker, and I have merged the btrfs changes for
6.10. So maybe they are the cause.

I was blaming the DRM case mainly because it clearly *was* about some
kind of allocation management, and I got a *lot* of those warnings:

$ journalctl -b -1 | grep 'WARNING: CPU' | wc -1

but let's see if it happens with my amdgpu reverts in place, and no
drm warnings.

It most definitely wouldn't be the first time we had multiple
independent bugs during the merge window ;/
