SubjectRe: sky2 panic in 2.6.32.1 under load (tty NULL write)
Made some more progress - hopefully someone can point me in the right 
direction....
Put extra debugging printk's into tty_io.c and learned that when init
starts the mingetty's, tty_release_dev is called for ptm0, and the tty
structure is freed (according to the debug log message) - but up to this
point, it had never been allocated. It looks like this is happening as
the result of vhangup for pts0 being invoked while in the middle of
closing (tty_release_dev) several tty1's. I'm guessing that's where
something is being stepped on, but haven't tracked it down quite yet.
Regardless, it's after this that I can generate sky2 network errors, and
not before. This does not seem to happen if I remove /etc/events.d/tty1
before boot.
