Hi Masami,

I was able to reproduce the panic. I'm currently running patch 1 and 4
through my standard tests before pushing this out as urgent.

Does this exist in previous kernels? If so, I'll also add the stable tag
to it.

Could you resend the trivial patches when you make your necessary
corrections. They are not important as these are and I'll add them to a
separate queue.
