This is critical. Please provide an update on availability of fix.
This appears resolved in the 2.4.18-4 kernel.
This is still likely an issue with the 2.1AS 2.4.9 kernel, so I'll switch the
product/version so that this can be tracked for that kernel.
This should be fixed in the lated AS2.1 kernel errata.
Confirmed on the current AS kernel errata.
