I noticed that my last kernel was not behaving correctly. Specifically
that nfs (unrelated) and devfs were not starting correctly. I upgraded
to the 2.4.13 kernel and paid special attention to those two items. Now
syncing with Coldsync no longer causes a kernel panic. It just doesn't
work. It can't communicate with the Clie to get the serial number and
other information. Since I'm using devfs I can't say it is the kernel.
I will have to test it further.
