Hola Patricio (tambien ;)

I'll write in English, so everyone else can understand.  I think you
can understand me :)

Are you able to boot off an GNU/Linux installation CD?  (Eg: Red Hat,
Debian, Mandrake)  Do you get the same problem?

FYI: the kernel on that disk was contributed by Kent Robotti, which
is 2.4.18.

Cool :)

Cheers,

1. PATCH 2.4.18-rc2-ac1: hang on spinlock in "expand_stack"

Alan:

I've enclosed a patch against 2.4.18-rc2-ac1, but it appears the same
bug still exists in 2.4.19-pre1-ac1.  The "ac"-branch version of
"expand_stack" in "mm/mmap.c" has a code path that doesn't unlock the
spinlock.  I noticed when a "gdb" bug tickled it and locked up my
machine.
