Ah, tripping a bug in the kernel is never fun to debug.  I have a few
guesses as to what may be going wrong, and the kernel having an
overinflated idea of what DMA transfer sizes the Thinkpad can handle
is high on the list.

I'm going to be doing a sweep of the various bug reports that have
come in since 10.2 for an upcoming release soon and will have a few
things for you to try if you're still there and still willing.

Thanks for the report!  Reports are important!
