Yeah, because all starts with "I have a new theory..." :o)

Linus, are you trying to give me a heart-attack? This sh*t just survived
20(!) hibernation runs without a problem (well, there is this nagging
/sysfs lockdep warning) but apart from that, it survived! I even did my
all time best when hitting on it. Normally, it used to crap up on the
6th cycle as latest. Now we're rock solid. And yes, there were something
like ~64Mb in the swap cache.
Also, I have your verification stuff in addition to the 4 patches you
sent before. Not a single WARN_ONCE got triggered. So I have a gut
feeling that it is fixed but you never know with these beasts.
As before, I'll rebuild and reapply everything in the morning and retest
just in case. And I guess I'll have to test all following -rc's so that
we can be absolutely sure.
