Devfs isn't the only code that can panic without a warning. If some
code gets passed a bogus pointer, there's not a lot you can do
(without putting in error checking on almost every line, and if we did
that, our performance would suck).

Please grab the latest devfs patch and apply it to kernel 2.4.15-pre9
or later. If the problem persists, please send a bug report directly.
Patch available at:

ftp://ftp.no.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/rgooch/v2.4/devfs-patch-v198.gz
