    The first crash was with gcc 4.1.1, but now I recompiled the kernel
    with "gcc version 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-56.fc5)" and I
    can still reproduce the same crash. The backtrace looks the same,
    although the addresses are obviously different. Some hand copied data
    from the oops:

    BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 1d075089
    eax: cc671e5c ebx: d58569a0 ecx: d58569a0 edx: 00000014

    ds: 007b es: 007b ss: 0068
    EIP: ipv4_conntrack_help+0x8e/0x93
