    Whoops... Sorry.

    It's been a while since I've followed the devel kernel stuff. The only
    address I remembered was the Linux kernel mailing list.

    yes.. I noticed this later and looked up all the return addresses in the
    call trace. Here's a better look:

    Address closest to EIP and the addresses in the call trace (in order):
    c016ecd0 t cleanup (EIP)
    c016ed40 t ip_fw_check
    c0170304 T ipfw_forward_check
    c0149a6c T call_fw_firewall
    c015819c T ip_forward
    c0157538 T ip_rcv
    c014c3f8 T net_bh
    c0119570 T get_ioport_list
    c010a560 T do_IRQ
    c0108cec T ret_from_intr
    c0107b7c T sys_rt_sigsuspend

    And you're entirely right. It's barfing in ip_fw_check.

    Unfortunately, it still barfs even with always defragment turned on. Unless
    my kernel configuration is borked, there's still something that needs
