photo of oops that appeared on the screen

Description of problem:

I installed the latest updates this morning and rebooted to get the 3.6.1 kernel loaded. After using the system for a bit, I got the kernel OOPS I will attach a photo of.

The oops was very sudden, and when it happened, I was trying to connect an android device to my local subnet created via hostapd on my f17 desktop. I mention that since I see dhcpd mentioned in the OOPS.

I also see audit mentioned in the OOPS, and I was running with the audit=0 kernel command line option. When rebooting, I removed that and enabled the auditd service, so I'll see if I get another oops with audit running.

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

How reproducible:
Just once so far.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above
Actual results:
sudden oops

Expected results:
sustem keeps working

this should be fixed upstream in commit d1c7d97ad58836affde6e39980b96527510b572e
I'll point it out for the stable maintainers.
Comment 2 Tom Horsley 2012-10-17 15:40:01 EDT
With audit enabled, the oops has not happened again, so it does indeed sound like a missing NULL pointer check could do it.
Comment 3 Josh Boyer 2013-01-02 12:17:29 EST
This was backported to 3.6.3 with stable commit 724373bd489eb02e1999e2714fcc00658e081a9b
