I did some changing around, now have a few more processes stuck.
$ps xwo pid,stat,command,wchan | grep ' D'
6 DW [kupdated] wait_on_buffer
1892 D sshd: csmall [pr lock_page
2417 D sshd: csmall [pr lock_page
2524 D sync wait_on_buffer
21654 D grep upsmon /var lock_wait
So kupdated and sync are waiting on a buffer and I think grep and sshd's
problem is that they're waiting for kupdated to get its act together.
Any idea why wait_on_buffer is not returning?
