I just rebuilt 2.6.25-rc1-git2 with Ingo's patch and your patch on top,
 and the Oracle VKTM issue is still gone even with

[asuardi@sandman ~]$ grep GROUP_SCHED
/share/src/linux-2.6.25-rc1-git2-orafix/.config
CONFIG_GROUP_SCHED=y
CONFIG_FAIR_GROUP_SCHED=y
CONFIG_RT_GROUP_SCHED=y
# CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED is not set

 so it's good for me.

Or is it necessary to also enable CONFIG_CGROUP_SCHED and retest ?
