Attached is the stack trace.  (Is there any easier way to get the trace beyond
connecting a serial console and redirecting kern.* to /dev/ttyS0?)

thanks for the trace.
question: do you have a usb-storage device in use?
If so, I've fixed a bug in that last week which mostly matches with your backtrace

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-05 17:42:12 UTC
never mind; from looking at the USB serial code it looks like it has the same bug ;(

Comment 6 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2003-04-07 15:53:08 UTC
Yes, it's a usb-serial bug.  I'll look into fixing this.

However, devlabel isn't for usb-serial devices, it will not work with them.
devlabel is only for usb-storage devices.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
