It happened while /usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl is running.
I uploaded screenshots at the moment of oops.

The process who triggered this oops is "slabinfo".
So I tried "strace slabinfo" while I am running /usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl ,
and I found that the oops is happening while trying to read hgfsReqCache entry.

VMware workstation 6.0.4

Guest OS:

Ubuntu 7.10 i386
Using NAT's DHCP for networking.
