Hello,

please excuse my late response. But I've found another kernel panic
which stopped my test case execution each time. Now I've managed to work
around the problem and it looks pretty good. With the patch I was not
able to reproduce the problem within 24 hours runtime. Previously I
could trigger it within 2-4 hours runtime.

Kind regards

André
