I have CC'ed the Debian linux maintainers as I noticed your kernel
reports a null pointer deference in the kernel (see below for the
trace).  I have taken the liberty of reassigning it to the linux package
as well.
  @linux maintainers: if you suspect that the null pointer issue is
unrelated to Bills boot problem, please clone the bug and throw the bug
back to upgrade-reports for further analysis.

Any news on this problem?  I am still seeing this problem even though
we have moved on to 3.16.7-ckt7-1.

I had the thought to look at the kernel modules that support the
PERC controller on these Dell systems.  Explicitly specifying the
mpt* modules and updating initramfs does not fix the problem.

We have plenty of these 1950s.  I really need to come up with a
work around or a solution to this problem.  Any ideas about what
I should try next?
