Another update--with the collected patches:

Again, the x86_64 ran for > 22 hours w/o error before I shut it down.

And, again, the ia64 went into soft lockup--same stack traces. This
time after > 17 hours of running. It is possible that a BUG started
this, but it has long scrolled out of my terminal buffer by the time I
see the system.

I'm now trying the ia64 platform with 26-rc5-mm3 + collected patches
with UNEVICTABLE_LRU de-configured. I'll start that up today and let it
run over the weekend [with panic_on_oops set] if it hasn't hit the
problem before I leave.

Regards,
Lee
