Subject[PROBLEM] - Kernel 2.4.0-test8 panics (addendum: rebooted suddenly while writing about the "panic" problem .. this is my second attempt)


My kernel panicked at /net/core/skbuff.c (line: 93 "BUG();")
That was the first time when I booted into it.

The second time, it was fine till about 2 hours, while I was writing *this* mail. Rebooted all of
a sudden (no idea as to where the problem was. It was _quick_. No messages, nothing).

This is my first post. Please do correct me if I've supplied incomplete information. (the output
of dmesg follows)
