No, I'm not able to get a backtrace or any other log because my

Sorry for the mixup, I was responding to Ludovic who reported that he
sees a kernel panic, but didn't make it explicitly clear :-P.
I can try. Can you give me a tarball of the same kernel you test ?
Thus, we are sure that we test the same kernel.
I'm using the Debian's kernels from unstable, just apt-get source
linux-2.6 to get the tree. If we can positively confirm that reverting
the locking change fixes the problems at least on UP machines, I'll push
this information upstream so that this change can be reviewed.
I have tested your patch with a SuperSPARC-II/smp workstation and I
cannot obtain any error. I have seen that the last release candidate
(2.6.17-rc2) is given with this patch. Thus, I have tried to boot in smp
configuration, but kernel panics very early.
