Description Bill Gorder 2012-03-16 11:44:50 EDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20110428 Fedora/3.6.17-1.fc13 Firefox/3.6.17

Fedora 16 kernel panics on HP G70 laptop on any network operation including a ping with kernel 3.2.7-1.fc16.x86_64.  With kernel vmlinuz-3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64 there are no panics, but the firewall doesn't appear to be functional as some allowed operations seem to be blocked.  Messages in the log preceding a panic include retry messages for IP6 concluding with "<info> (wlan0): IP6 addrconf timed out or failed".

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system
2. ping (any address) -- or -- any network operation
Actual Results:  
kernel panic

An item that may be significant that I just noticed in the log for vmlinuz-3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64, the original kernel, not the one that panics.  There is no such message in the log for vmlinuz-3.2.7-1.fc16.x86_64, the kernel that panics
