I filed a bug report back in June and wondered if any progress has been

"Badness in interruptible_sleep_on_timeout at kernel/sched.c"? i.e. What
does "Badness" mean?
Getting the following trace on the console of a freshly installed
Fedora Core 2 box.
Badness in interruptible_sleep_on_timeout at kernel/sched.c:2533

I already upgraded from the stock kernel from the CD distribution.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every minute. Every time I boot.
I have googled/searched bugzilla and found a couple of similar issues
but these were for a different module and different versions and I did
not think they were appropriate. These were for #116864 and #125482.
Do I need to upgrade the kernel further. If so where would I find such
I have since upgraded the kernel to kernel-2.6.8-1.521 and I still get
the notice up on the console.

Any more ideas anyone? Or can people point me to a place to look for
information? Do I need to get in contact with the kernel developers at all?
