Thanks for the patch! I'm happy to take it into my test kernels and
to champion it for RHEL4. But, I need a little more of your help.
Would you mind opening a bugzilla for this issue?
Please open a bugzilla and let me know what its number is (or assign
it to me). Thanks!
P.S. Go ahead and attach your patch to the bugzilla as well!

I can confirm the box booted successfully with your kernel

I will let this box run for a few weeks and see if it keeps running. I keep you
given how late this bug was created, i doubt this is going to make it into
update 3, is it?
No, this is far too late for U3.
It seems that the patch is working fine. The machine is working nonstop without
committed in stream U4 build 34.4. A test kernel with this patch is available
