Maciej - Thanks for opening a bug to track this.

David - Let me know if you can pull the irace branch down and test out it. I'd appreciate it.
It will have to wait 'till tomorrow now, but I'll give it a whirl and report back.
I can confirm that your patches seem to correct my issues. All looks fine through several kernel builds.
Cheers (and many thanks)
David - Thanks for testing that branch.
Linus just pulled the fixes in, so this should be fixed in 2.6.40-rc1.
