SubjectRe: OOPS running "ls -l /sys/class/i2c-adapter/*"-- 2.6.12-rc1-mm2
Ahem.  In this case, I think it was operator error.  I reproduced the
problem and have included the entire output of ksymoops below.

Andrew, this command causes the Oops for me:

root@Monkey100:/sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-1# ls
./ ../ device@
root@Monkey100:/sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-1# ls -l
Segmentation fault

This architecture has variable length instructions, decoding before eip
is unreliable, take these instructions with a pinch of salt.
