[PATCH] 2.6.x SMP UltraSPARC instability

Can folks seeing problems on SMP sparc64 boxes with 2.6.x
give this patch a try?

Both cases compiled with gcc-3_3-branch dated 20040623 (post 3.3.4)

2.6.11 without patch:
crashes after about 2 minutes of uptime

2.6.12-rc3 with patch:
so far it's been up for about 10 minutes with no problems so far... I'm
going to leave it doing some high load tasks while I head out to go see
a movie... hopefully it'll still be up when I get back.

system is an ultra2, and the following info is as reported under
2.4.29smp

/proc/cpuinfo

I've heard scsi is sometimes a factor with some of the 2.6 issues, so
including this for good measure:

Looking good still after almost 7 hours... also looks like I'm not
affected by the SCSI bugs others have hit as I've been doing a ton of
disk i/o with no problems... =)
