Great that you have found that. It does indeed look likely.

Well, this makes it a kernel problem (which was most likely from the 
beginning). I see you already followed up to the upstream bugzilla bug 
report, which was the right thing to do. Hopefully the kernel maintainers 
will contact you on that and you can work with them to solve the issue. 

If you don't get any reply from upstream, please keep trying. Best is to 
keep testing with new kernels as they become available and report if 
anything changes.

I'm reassigning this report to the kernel with a link to the bugzilla 
report. Sorry we can't be of more help.
