Same problem in the stock 2.4.19 and 2.4.20-pre8 kernels. segfaults in
Whoops, I see the problem. A fix is on its way to the maintainers.
Didn't see this fix in 2.4.20-pre10. Any idea when we'll see this in a RH
kernel or in the main?
Closing. The fix for this is in current errata kernels and upstream.
