@Zhu: the patch didn't help. I patched it into the kernel plus activated
CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER which led to the same hang (not surprisingly, the
patch does only debug more ;-)

This time unfortunately I there was too much output to actually capture it.

@Johannes: 100% reproducible. Everytime I boot into 33-rc4 and ssh into
any remote place it goes boom. 100%.

Maybe another tidbig might help: With it happens that I have
hickups with WLAN:
[ 996.514491] iwlagn 0000:06:00.0: iwl_tx_agg_start on ra = 00:24:c4:ab:bb:42 tid = 0
and the connections needs 10-20secs (hard to guess) until it is
back alive.

Best wishes
