Athlon 64X2 3GHz in 64 bits mode
Since kernel 2.6.36-rc2 (and maybe -rc1), sometime the kernel freezes totally at boot. The kernel is compiled with kmemcheck, deadlock detection, etc.
I've got a photo on -rc3, since I cannot save anything when that happens.
Basically, its confusing, there is a warning, a:
BUG: sleeping function called on invalid context at mm/mmap.c: 232
and a general protection fault, to terminate with a panic - exception in interrupt.
The call stack doesn't appeared after the crash.
I've appended the photo if it can help.
This occurs roughly one boot every ten.
Still present in 2.6.36-rc4
I've got two more screenshots (the end of the oops, before freeze)

Maybe the same as https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17361
At least I haven't seen these call stacks (with scsi...) with -rc5, so closing.
17361 is just enough.
