    Sure. Infact all the kernel (modules included) runs in ring 0 sharing the same
    part of VM and - as everybody knows - a bug in a driver (or in khttpd or tux)
    can crash the kernel.

    But you can't destabilize the whole system when a bug in apache triggers (that
    would happen with a ring 0 linux instead, and yes, with "linux" Jeff meant the
    whole system, not just the kernel).
