I double checked this now. This case Eric ran into should be already
fixed by a patch from Jan that went in before 2.6.18 even.

He just ran with an old kernel (2.6.18-rc3) that didn't have
that particular fix.

Hmm, not sure I'm following you, but I did try with the released
v2.6.18 (fourth stacktrace in my first email in this thread). The
2.6.13-rc3 (d94a041519f3ab1ac023bf917619cd8c4a7d3c01) version was
tested only as the result of git-bisect, and is the first kernel that
crashed in this way. But v2.6.18 crashed in a similar way as well.
Are you saying v2.6.18 should contain a fix preventing it from crashing?

Still the kernel stack termination is probably a good idea. I think
(haven't tested) the current 2.6.18-git* code with termination
wouldn't have crashed, but reported a (incorrect) stuck.

Making sure my post was clear: that's what v2.6.18 + termination does.

Sorry if I misunderstood you.
