I may have spoken too soon.  That fixed this particular problem, but I've
got engineers in the field who still see the bad behavior, albeit far less
frequently.  Are there any other bugfixes for the linuxppc_2_4 kernel mm
out there?

I've tried looking at the linuxppc_2_4_devel tree for changes, but there
seem to be a lot for the mm, and these changes ripple out to other parts
of the code; I can't just grab a file here and there, the changes start
to be too much.
