    Generally it's best to enable CONFIG_ALLSYMS and not bother running
    ksymoops: the kernel does the decode for you.

    The problem with ksymoops seems to be that it causes people to not send
    important preceding messages. In this case:

    printk(KERN_ERR "kfree_debugcheck: out of range ptr %lxh.\n",
    (unsigned long)objp);

    Anyway, you died in kobject_cleanup()'s call to kfree(kobj->k_name), which
    was newly added as a part of kobject-unlimited-name-lengths.patch.

    Is it repeatable? Exactly which modules were you attempting to load at the
    time? And please send your .config.
