It is very old kernel, so hard to say exactly which patches are needed
but my guess is it is very similar to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=360151
(note: fixed 2007!) with upstream patch
(But there can more patches, this is really old and someone need
to do proper analysis what is going here.)
