I did a search for this problem and found that the sparc64 guys had a
similar problem that they solved. I don't know if the problem is
similar.
http://lists.debian.org/debian-sparc/2003/debian-sparc-200311/msg00068.h
tml

They solved it by analysing an strace.  I did the same. Looking at it,
it looks like some linking is failing and then later on SYS_4255(), the
critical function is failing.

Hope that helps someone to understand.

I checked in the last fixes for the preemptible kernel less than two
days ago so if your kernel is older than that it's time to update :-)
