Subject2.5.58 Oops when booting from initrd - kobject_del
Date
Kernel: 2.5.58 (everything but the tag changeset)

My attempt to boot an initrd resulted in the following oops:
(scribbled down important parts)
=======================================================
unable to handle kernel NULL pointer at virtual address 00000064
...
EIP at sysfs_remove_dir + 0xb/0x140

=========================================================

Last I checked initrd worked fine in 2.5.56
============================================================

Another two minor questions for whoever might read this.

- Would it be possible to make Kconfig remember the location from which the
config file was last loaded? It would be more convenient that way.

- Is Jaroslav Kysela, <perex@suse.cz> the current ALSA maintainer
as listed in MAINTAINERS for 2.5.58?
