I took a day out to look at it, I can spend more time on debugging it,
as hacking the kernel into shape on this box is somewhat of a hobby
project for me.

I think the one thing I didn't take a look at was the copy_to_user()
changes, so it could be useful to explore that, and I've got a couple
of other tricks up my sleeve.
