Have you tried running the examples without the kernel module installed? 
I think that one of the tracebacks in the earlier email was due to that. 
Like the following:

Dec 20 10:39:01 trek kernel: Call Trace:
Dec 20 10:39:01 trek kernel:  [<c0201ee7>] __pfm_create_context+0x167/0x440

I tried the patch. Things are still not working on the p6 machine with 
the module installed. for "./task_smpl ls". The associated kernel backtrace:
