I suspect a mem corruption from another layer (not inetpeer)

Unfortunately many kmem caches share the "64 bytes" cache.

Could you please add "slub_nomerge" on your boot command ?


This way, we can separate corruptions on each cache.


On your crash, one inetpeer contain garbage on unused_lists next/prev
pointers :

RCX: 0000000000000005
RDX: 0b000209f1beadde

Definitly something overwrote these values with non pointers values.
