Subjectrtl8187 driver in 2.6.23-rc6-git5: kernel panic if not used as a module. Works as a module.
First let me start by a thanks: it was the last piece of my P5W de luxe
machine based that has not its driver from stock kernel.

It works like a charm when used as a module:

However, when I compile it directly inside the kernel, I get a panic
with a backtrace at usb initilialisation. The backtrace points to
registering things in /proc (make-directory or something)!

I can probably take a picture of the backtrace if you want.

Config: Asus P5W de luxe, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz, pure
64 bits install.
