SubjectRe: [Oops] Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference
Thank you Martin! Upgrading to test9-pre5 and applying your patch
works a treat. I've tried running through the steps that lead to the
crash with the old kernel and there's now no trace of an oops! Thanks
also to Igmar Palsenberg who pointed me in the right direction.
