That's a NOP, ehci->async must never be null.

What oops? The original post didn't include a stack...

Erm, no that's a NOP.

Depends on the particular bug you're hypothesizing is in
the BIOS ... the original bug was fixed by Dell's patch on at

a slightly different BIOS bug to be worked around ...

Actually, I don't recall anyone providing a patch that addressing
that second type of BIOS bug before. Makes sense to me to fall
back to that old Linux bug; why not!
