Comment(by dsd):

 X is hung in galcore trying to obtain a mutex, in _IncrementCommitAtom:

         Command->os, hardware->recMutexPower, gcvINFINITE

 One galcore daemon thread is blocked in threadRoutine trying to acquire a
         down = down_interruptible(&device->semas[gcvCORE_MAJOR]);

 Another galcore daemon thread is blocked in threadRoutine2D similarly:
         down = down_interruptible(&device->semas[gcvCORE_2D]);

 I think the threadRoutine state is normal - thats just the way it waits
 for an interrupt.

 I can't see any obvious problems with recMutexPower and there doesn't seem
 to be any other thread holding it.

 lockdep might help if we had it running on this platform...
