Description Benjamin Cleyet-Marrel 2005-09-16 10:07:43 UTC

I am having a kernel panic when IPsec SA key expired with autogenerated policies .
this problem happens a least with latest RedHat EL 2.6 kernels and 2.4 kernels

I found the solution of my problem here
And it seems that it is a kernel bug.

the description is diffirent as i am having this problem on i386.

anyway the fix proposed on the mailing list is working for me.
I would recomand to integrate this patch into the next kernel release.
if it is not done already !
