Subjectmemory corruption in tcp bind hash buckets on SMP?

We are seeing kernel crashes which seem to be caused because of some
of the members in tcp_bind_bucket object get corrupt. These crashes
seem to happen unpredictabily with network activity (need not always
be heavy laod).

Kernel: 2.4.7-10 SMP (RedHat 7.2) on Dual PIIIs. We kind of have to
work with Redhat kernels. Also I searched the list and did not find
any relevant info to think this bug was observed or fixed in later
kernels. Any insights or suggestions as how to fix it are most welcome.
We have seen crashes at two places:

oops 1 (added below) happens here:

bhead = &tcp_bhash[tcp_bhashfn(sk->num)];
tw->tb = (struct tcp_bind_bucket *)sk->prev;
if ((tw->bind_next = tw->tb->owners) != NULL)
===> tw->tb->owners->bind_pprev = &tw->bind_next;
^^^^^^ (owners is NULL _after_ the above if() succedes)
tw->tb->owners = (struct sock*)tw;
tw->bind_pprev = &tw->tb->owners;

oops 2 (added below) happens here:


if (tb != NULL && tb->owners != NULL) {
if (tb->fastreuse != 0 && sk->reuse != 0 && sk->state != TCP_LISTEN)
goto success;
} else {
struct sock *sk2 = tb->owners;
int sk_reuse = sk->reuse;

for( ; sk2 != NULL; sk2 = sk2->bind_next) {
if (sk != sk2 &&
======> sk->bound_dev_if == sk2->bound_dev_if) {
^^^ sk2 is 0x1
if (!sk_reuse ||
!sk2->reuse ||
sk2->state == TCP_LISTEN) {
