Here it is:

        ftp://ftp.us.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/andrea/patches/v2.4/2.4.0-test12/alpha-ASN-SMP-races-2.4.x-2

This one breaks all archs but i386 and alpha. If some arch maintainer likes me
to update its arch blindly implementing mm_arch structure as an `unsigned long
context' and fixing up the miscompilation I will do.
