I had a bug with sdhci which Pierre Ossman looked at for me.

In the end essentially the fix was to use HZ=1000 and nothing else.
Pierre seemed to think that this was a bug in the scheduler.

I'm interested if someone who groks the scheduler could take a look at
the mmc/* code and see if it's abusing HZ or if there's anything
obviously wrong there.  If it's not then perhaps there really is a bug
in the scheduler?

Here's the log that caused him to suspect the scheduler:

and his post saying so:

Originally I tried to narrow it down:
http://list.drzeus.cx/pipermail/sdhci-devel/2007-November/002072.html
and shows a commit that seemed to "fix" it for me
http://list.drzeus.cx/pipermail/sdhci-devel/2007-November/002072.html
but apparently the commit I reverted was good
http://list.drzeus.cx/pipermail/sdhci-devel/2007-November/002078.html

I'm happy to provide more information or try different kernels/config
options etc (I really should upgrade the kernel on my laptop anyway).

Thanks,
