Package: linux-image-2.6.25-2-686-bigmem
Version: 2.6.25-7
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

I've upgraded recently to kernel 2.6.25, used it for a while (couple of hourse,
it's not on my primary machine).

Today I noticed that it produces random hangs. First it crashed while doing a
partimage from sda to sda.

After that (and after doing an upgrade to 2.6.25-7 - it was 6 before, so it
affects both packages) it hung while copying from sda to sdb (a USB hdd).

The hang is the same in both cases: console is still active (receives keystrokes)
but no command gets through. I can switch consoles, though (Alt-F1, Alt-F2) but
obviously none of them work.

I can press SysReq, and reboot from there. 2.6.24-7 is stable so far.
