no output, i did 4 tests, everytime i was able to lock the ssh-connection
within a few seconds. kernel 2.5.59 + your debug-patch.

Thanks for testing, how about this new patch at the end of this email?
Does it make the problem go away?

Alexey, most solid report is that 2.5.43-bk1 makes bug appear.
This is good because it sort of narrows things down. What is
contained there in networking is:

1) initial stackable dst logic, should not cause problems
2) addition of UDP sendfile and ip_append_*() logic
3) fix to tcp_check_req() "fix" :-) it only changes bahevior
on connect so should not be a problem

I heavily, therefore, suspect #2 which is why I am poking around
in the tcp.c changes to change checksumming and copying semantics.
