Exalytics: Stability problems after 208 days uptime

Last year, I learned a very good lesson about letting your servers go too long before reboot but this surprising issue affects the latest and greatest Oracle product: Exalytics.  My Oracle Support note 1579194.1 details what version of Linux OS are susceptible to "Oracle Exalytics Stability and Performance Issues on Compute Nodes Running Linux After Uptime of More Than 208 Days" which affects all releases and PSUs of Exalytics.

Symptoms include kernel panics, task scheduler issues, and CPU soft lockup errors!
