Description of problem:
The latest patch to fix it.
I'm not really sure I agree this is a blocker. It's been seen on exactly 1 machine, which had a BIOS set to a crazy date in the future.
This isn't really that big of a deal. The reality is that you're only going to hit this bug if you've set your BIOS year to greater than the year 2400.
It will obviously be fixed in mainline, but IMO, it's not a critical fix.
The patch is queued up in tip now. I'll try and find it amongst the forest of Ingo and put it in rawhide/f18.
I was out yesterday and in the meantime the commit wound up in Linus' tree. This is fixed with kernel-3.6.0-0.rc3.git1.1.fc18
