3.18 froze twice (just to be sure) as well. Will commence the slow and
painful bisect between 3.16.7 and 3.17rc1 after I've established that
the latter freezes reliably.
I assume my problems are not linked to the RCU problems described in
this thread since I have no logging in kernel and different symptoms?
Should I start a new thread, or maybe better file a bug and report
progress on the bisect there? I won't be too noisy on the list with my
findings untill I'm done though.
