Please, explain to me how changing a Panic into a Warning without
effectively fixing the root cause of the bug "fixes" anything?

And, oh, if by "graceful failure" you mean: "it will blow up your raid
devices and kill your filesystems", then yes, the failure has been
very graceful for me, thankyouverymuch. I could have lived with a
little less gracefulness, though ;-/

There's no need to take your frustration out on me.  I know nothing

I don't think I've taken out my frustration on you, I would have been a lot less ironic and a lot more postal if I had been to take the frustration resulting from the pain this caused me on anyone... I must say tho I'm quite frustrated that incremental kernel upgrades to the now frozen next stable release introduce *regressions*...

about IA64 and have to assume that upstream developers know what they
are doing.

That remains an open question ;P

Please test Linux 2.6.35 as packaged in experimental.

I'm afraid this is absolutely not happening, this machine is a webserver and I've just spent enough time bringing it back to life... Besides squeeze is not shipping with 2.6.35, right? I'm hoping you plan on releasing a working kernel for the upcoming stable release?

One thing I don't get is why the need to break a perfectly working kernel (2.6.32-9)? Can't the specific change that introduced this bug be simply reverted?
