seeing a similar issue on two of my 4.6 boxes running MailScanner as MX filters.
Same here. It panics during heavy IO via MySQL.
The problem is in next_thread function, I'm assigning this issue to Vitaly.
This is a race between release_task() and sys_times()->next_thread()

Unhash process with locked sighahd->siglock.
We had two of these this weekend. Previously stable systems were upgraded to
the latest kernel and two locked last night, not even making 24 hours. In my
opinion this bug should be urgent.
