SubjectKernel oops & panic in ISDN

I've got a Redhat 6.2 box here with a HiSax PCI ISDN card
(modprobed with parameters: type=36 protocol=2). It's running a custom
compiled 2.2.17 kernel. If I do an "isdnctrl dial ippp0" it dials up and
negotiates the IP address, etc. However, I can't transmit any data across
the syncppp link - whenever I try to ping the remote peer, I get:

isdn_ppp: No compressor set!
ippp: no decompressor defined!

Fairly frequently when I send data across the syncppp link, I get either
an Oops or a panic (see below). From what I can tell from the call trace,
the oops happens in udp_recvmsg and the panic happens in net_bh.

Has anyone got any ideas how I can fix it, or is it a major bug with the
kernel and not going to work any time soon? (If it's a problem with that
particular card, I can go out and buy a new card, so that's not too much
of a problem).
