Yes yes, I know the kernel is tainted "P" (courtesy of the infamous

Please don't post tainted Oops reports to LKML. It's not a political issue, it's a technical one - a tainted kernel CANNOT be debugged.

Thank you for flaming. ;-) I thought the lines above would lead some people to read on and post an enlightening answer to the implicit question that followed, so I'll restate it below.

Reproduce with an untainted kernel and repost.

Ok, I'll try.

In the mean time, maybe someone can try to answer my original question, that was: is there a race between snd_pcm_oss_change_params() reallocating a buffer and resample_expand() using another (possibly the same)?

Now I hope that my mail client does not taint the question as well. ;-)
