SubjectRe: iwlagn driver segfault in 2.6.28-rc3
I just got (another) one of this too.

The wireless connection suddenly lost the AP and I was waiting
for ifplugd to reconnect to it again automatically, as it always

After waiting for one or two minutes I decided to 'modprobe -r
iwlagn' but this command never returned (it got stuck).

Then I looked at the end of dmesg and found this:

I tried to reboot but it got stuck too, so I had to SysRq+b.

From now on I will apply Reinette's patch and wait for it to
happen again (but it seldom happens).
