Bug#610085: [2.6.26 -> 2.6.32 regression] [xeon x3430] symptoms of memory corruption when more than one CPU core is activated

Dear Jonathan,

the problem went away with kernel 3.0 and 3.1.
Im now happily running Debian/testing on my HP ProLiant G6 with Intel Xeon processor.
Previous kernels are crashing though.

Sorry for the slow reply.  The symptoms point to memory corruption,
so the question becomes _what_ is corrupting the memory.

The first step to answering that is to try as recent a kernel as
possible, so we can get help from upstream.  Could you try a 3.x.y
kernel from sid or experimental and let us know how it goes?

Please also attach full "dmesg" output from booting such a kernel.

Sorry for the trouble,
