Subject[BUG] Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference
Hi List,

Sorry if it isn't the right place to ask this question, but I was
reported the following error in the kernel.

Syscheckd (process in the crash) is a userland (no kernel/lkm code)
file integrity checking tool that scans the system and generates the
md5/sha1 sum of all the files (if it helps to identify the problem).

I am guessing it is a bug in the kernel, since no user process should
cause this...

A similar problem was also reported in here:

Any clues?
