It happened again, and this time I've left the kernel addresses in, and it's quite
interesting:

[ 88.837926] Call Trace:
[ 88.837926] [<ffffffff9ff6a792>] __sock_create+0x292/0x3c0
[ 88.837926] [<ffffffff9ff6a610>] ? __sock_create+0x110/0x3c0
[ 88.837926] [<ffffffff9ff6a920>] sock_create+0x30/0x40
[ 88.837926] [<ffffffff9ff6ad4c>] SyS_socket+0x2c/0x70
[ 88.837926] [<ffffffffa0561c30>] ? tracesys+0x7e/0xe6
[ 88.837926] [<ffffffffa0561c93>] tracesys+0xe1/0xe6

tracesys() seems to live inside a module space here?


Thanks,
Sasha
