OK, thanks.

Now, Linus is trying to get a good 2.6.0-test7 out the door early this week
and it's not helpful that ia64 goes BUG every time it wants to dump core!

I am in Tokyo and am not able to test your patch.  Could someone please
apply Roland's patch to current -bk, then run Linux Test Project (it BUGged
in two seconds for me) and then send the patch to Linus fairly promptly?
