Subject2.6.38-rc5 tcp_connect oops: EIP = 0x0
But wonder of wonders, kernel mode switching worked so I got to see the
oops on the text-mode console. It happened just as I tried to ssh out.

It's a Core 2 duo laptop (Dell E1405), 2 GB RAM, running a 32-bit kernel.
It's worth noting that I was using wired internet (b44 driver) and
not wireless.

I've been having a lot of weird lockups with 2.6.38-rcX, quite a change
from the very stable 2.6.36, but this is the first time I booted -rc5.
Also, the symptoms are very different; before the lockup did not seen
correlated with any particular activity, but the "lockup" was more like
something getting wedged in the kernel that more and more tasks would
get stuck on until everything stopped responding.

I should mention that this is transcribed by hand from the screen.
Oh, and also, it is far from the first time I ran ssh this boot.
(I re-tested it ater rebooting, just to be sure. Not a consistent

Anyway, jumping to address 0 looks "interesting", so it seems worth reporting.
