Yep. Should be fixed now, see latest trunk. It was a deadlock due to clumsy unregistration of the reboot notifier from its own handler. I think the locking of the kernel changed in 2.6.17 (RCU) and made this fatal. Jan PS: 20us on a P-III 550 is a bit too good. I guess some serious load is missing (cache load, IRQs, ...).
