This problem was not present in 2.6.21-rc7 and there is no oops or other
unusual output in the system log at the time the hang occurs.

Can you use "git bisect" to narrow it down a bit more? It's only 125 commits, so bisecting even just three or four kernels will narrow it down to a handful

Yes. I'm just in the process of reading up on how to do the bisecting now. Should have an answer in a few hours, I guess.
