[PROBLEM] Soft lockup on Linux 2.6.27, 2 patches, Cell/PPC64

Hello,

I recently built 2.6.27 with these patches on my PS3.

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/geoff/cell/ps3-linux-patches/ps3-wip/ps3vram-driver.patch
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/geoff/cell/ps3-linux-patches/ps3-wip/ps3vram-proc-fs.patch

These patches enable the 'ps3vram' module, which creates a MTD node
/dev/mtdblock0.  I was using this device as swap at the time.

Now I am not sure if the patch is the issue.  None of the functions in
that list are functions in the patch... but this is my first time at
debugging a kernel bug, some of the functions have the word 'page' so it
might be due to problems occurring while paging to that mtdblock0
device, but surely calls to the functions in that patch would appear.
How would I start debugging this?

I am currently trying to reproduce this by performing some heavy task
(building gcc 4.3.2) without using that mtdblock0 device (video card
RAM) as a swap.  Is video RAM known to be [less reliable than system memory?

The trace is also available in pastebin: http://pastebin.com/m2ea72e52

PS: I also posted this on linuxppc-dev@xxxxxxxxxx, but thought it would
be appropriate to post here.
