After starting pppd and logging out, I receive a message simillar to
Local IP: 188.8.131.52
Remote IP: 184.108.40.206
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address

Then the system locks up to the point where I have to turn it off then
back on again.
I think ppp.c may be freeing some things prematurely, since everything
works fine if I don't use pppd.
Hmm...if I disabled the forced crash bit of code in mm/ I may be able to
get it to run normally, at the expense of stability.
