This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.29. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
I had this too, and can confirm cherrypicking the patch from tip/x86/urgent fixed it here.
The patch is in 2.6.30-rc4, again confirmed as working. That's mainline, so this bug should be closeable now. =:^)
