I am attaching a patch right now.  I had built this on my PPA (under the version
number linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22 - 2.6.22-14.40~ppa1 so that it will still be
upgradeable after a SRU is released) and had one of the affected users test it
They had told me that it worked for them and prevented the system freeze.
