ip_defrag is broken -- there is an obvious NULL pointer dereference
in it, introduced in test12. It doesn't hit normally, because of
path MTU discovery, but using NFS causes instant death.

I won't venture a fix, as I don't know the networking code well
enough. So far, no networking maintainer has had anything to say
about this bug on the list...


It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,
than to open it and remove all doubt.
