Bug#433187: linux-2.6 - [sparc64-smp] produces unkillable processes

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.18-5
Severity: grave
Forwarded: sparclinux@vger.kernel.org

sparc64 kernels produces unkillable dpkg-query processes (only seen in a
buildd environment yet). Each process sucks one cpu and 3GiB of memory.
Even the OOM killer is not able to kill them.

This problem exists up to 2.6.21 (and most likely also .22) and makes it
mostly impossible to run a reliable buildd.

The problem was forwarded to upstream[1] but no response yet.
