SubjectBUG in skb dequeue (skb->next is NULL) (was: Re: Kernel crash with 2.6.36)

dereference at (null)

I can confirm the bug reported by Frederic. The culprit is at:

next->prev = prev;

in __skb_unlink().

Something must be putting NULL pointers in the skb list.

Let me know how I can be of further help.
