    I just looked at the source; I forgot `make checkstack' existed.

    On this system:

    0xc0263e0f pkt_open [vmlinux]: 556

    which is nearly as bad.

    (As an aside, I'm surprised I didn't oops when packet-writing as well:

    0xc021270d udf_process_sequence [vmlinux]: 692
    0xc020f43d udf_add_entry [vmlinux]: 628

    owch. I guess that's called via a shorter call chain...)

    I'll try the patch after this series of backups is done :)
