SubjectPROBLEM: memory allocation error with token ring tms380/abyss modules [follow-up #2 -- 2nd OOPS analysis included]
Hello,
Here is another opps analysis. This is a second opps report posting for
on ongoing problem we are experiencing on a Linux system that is crashing
about once a week! Please route this message to the appropriate maintainer
if I haven't picked the correct names already. Thank You! Also, let me
know if there is anything I can do to help, such as test a patch for this
problem.

[root@ohdrouter /root]# ksymoops oops.7.9.2
001
ksymoops 0.7c on i686 2.4.5-ac23. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.4.5-ac23/ (default)
-m /usr/src/linux/System.map (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information. I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc. ksymoops -h explains the options.
