reinvestigated this issue on debian jessie (kernel 3.16-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.5-1)
and still getting hangs - has the mentioned patch made his way upstream ?

Looking at the 3.16.1 vanilla source at a first glance looks like it's not there - and
I seem to have no version which applys cleanly.

Thanks and a nice weekend
