The system does not seem to recover as often with this patch, but
I'm not sure why.  At first I thought it may be just reasonable
varience, but after backing out the patch and re-running more times,
then re-applying and re-re-running, it certainly looks like the
test fails quicker with the patch.

When it fails, it Oops's with an ip of 0, as if something was
not restored properly.  But I have to dig deeper to find out 
what is going on.
