This is happening both with MAINLINE and NEXT.

basically system is running fine, then under load system becomes really 
sluggish and unresponsive. I was able to get dmesg of the error..:

as for good kernels from what I remember 3.6.0-rc1. I can try a bisect 
on this once I get the time. or if anybody has a patch I can test.
