freeze while booting


Hello all, I recently did a binary update of the kernel via apt-get and all was well untill about a week ago when an apt-get upgrade installed an updated kernel. Upon rebooting, the system halted at

request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000
request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-0000

Does anyone have any solutions as to how I can fix this? I am running Debian Testing.

There are two possible problems I see with this....

EIther you are compiling with 64gb memory compiled into the kernel (I know I know, you installed via apt-get... this is probably not the reason) or you have an advansys in your system. There is talk on the linux kernel developers list that there is an issue with this particular module. The best thing I can say is to wait it out for another kernel update, when this problem will be fixed (and yes, the fix is out there...it just has to be incorporated into the debian stream...)
