Hi Philippe, thanks a lot for the hint. I configured my kernel from scratch, and got rid of the linux compile problems. I could thus verify that the commit you mentioned below DOES NOT have the problem I described, i.e., semaphores used by multiple processes which are running on different cores DID NOT hang anymore.
Then, I thought I try to bisect the problem with git, and I pulled the latest version of the 2.5 repository. Interestingly, with the very latest commits, my problem has gone away. I confirmed this by switching back to Alexis' analogy branch, which I need for my development. This branch is not quite as up-to-date as the 2.5 branch, and the hanging problem still exists. I merged the analogy branch with the latest 2.5 branch, and now nothing hangs anymore. I guess, I stop investigating at this point, unless the problem re-apprears. Thanks so much for you help!
