Please add to category "Nasty" another tunnel driver problem:

All versions of tunnel.c/new_tunnel.c I've check are crashable by the

ping -s 1453 <addr>
---> Segmentation fault and kernel Oops
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address c0000000

with <addr> beeing some network address routed through tunnel.
It should be easy to reproduce this bug: try pre2.0.8 with tunnel
support and these commands...

I've already sent a bug report to linux-kernel-mailinglist in March
`96 with detailed Oops reports from 1.3.79 and 1.3.57. The bug is still
(maybe again?) present in pre2.0.8!
