I was going to ask for exactly the same thing. My system is completely
unusable without this patch; not only does the network doesn't work,
but quite often the kernel is stuck consuming 100% of the CPU.

Why not? This patch makes the code go back to a previous state, it is
obviously more stable than the current state, and the code already
exists in Linus's tree (in previous releases).

But hey, I guess it's OK that 3.3.x is stuck in and endless loop right
after booting, because rules are more important than fixing obvious
