    I've only tested 2.3.40 (worked) and 2.3.45 upwards (dies).

    (From my original posting, March 7.)
    Did a little more experimenting with EPAT + PD in kernel 2.3.49pre1 today.
    A log message I got, without taking the computer down with it this time:

    Mar 7 20:03:16 frankenstein kernel: pda: OUCH: b_reqnext != NULL
    Mar 7 20:03:17 frankenstein last message repeated 46 times
