User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux 2.4.20-20.9 i686; U) Opera 7.11  [en]

Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Linux version 2.4.20-20.7 (bhcompile@porky.devel.redhat.com) (gcc 
version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.3 2.96-113)) #1

PS -- this is also a problem on RH9 too
2. Run netatalk 1.5.5 or netatalk (to server Mac Files)
3. Wait for a kernel panic (time seems to depend on how busy the server is -- 
the busier the faster this occurs).

Actual Results:  a log message will sometimes appear stating:  
kernel: Unable to handle a virtual address
kernel: printing eip

I will submit a second report for RH9 -- I have more info -- a screen dump.  I 
have log files too.  

Additional info:

Let me know if I should send my log file.

version of icmp.c. Up to 
2.4.20-20.9. File: net/ipv4/icmp.c
version (RH?) $Id: icmp.c,v

BUT function icmp_xmit_lock() still 
contains explicity 'panic'

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
