SubjectNULL Pointer Deference: NFS & Telnet
Hi,

I have 2 scenarios in which I am getting a NULL pointer dereference:

1) root filesystem over nfs
2) telnet connection

The issue appeared on this commit

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=f8965467f366fd18f01feafb5db10512d7b4422c

The driver I am working with is drivers/net/ks8851.c
Any help will be highly appreciated...
