Not reproducible, but see /var/log/messages excerpt attached.

This happened an hour after resuming a pm-suspend.

Why the forced modules?  Can you recreate this without force-loaded modules?  I
know you said not reproducible but seeing force-loaded modules and a subsequent
pointer error makes me a little suspicious.

Comment 4 Han-Wen Nienhuys 2006-09-25 18:14:54 EDT
oh, silly me, you're right.  This is with a 3rd party driver (intel 3945 wifi) -
so I guess it's due to that.  I completely forgot that I had it loaded at that
point (I almost never use wifi.)

does that make it a WONTFIX bug? 
Comment 5 Eric Sandeen 2006-09-25 18:30:13 EDT
Well, I hate to WONTFIX it but when there are unknowns like that in the kernel,
and -you- can't reproduce it, and it doesn't match other signatures that I've
seen, then there's not a lot to be done.  I think CANTFIX is appropriate, I'm

I'll keep an eye out for any similar problems w/o a tainted kernel, and re-open
or dup this bug to anything that comes up later.  If you hit it again w/o those
module, feel free to re-open.


Comment 6 Eric Sandeen 2006-09-29 13:20:27 EDT
Re-opening so I can dup it and relate it to the other eerily similar bug.
Comment 7 Eric Sandeen 2006-09-29 13:21:06 EDT
Duping to 208488 - even though it came second we've got more information there.
