Hm, I've got a strange problem here related to threaded IRQs and rmmod.

If I do this sequence, it crashes the machine:
rmmod module
modprobe module

Here are some oops messages. These are almost always different, so I
guess it crashes in IRQ context at random places when the IRQ triggers.

It seems to be a NULL pointer dereference somewhere, but I can't locate it.
Note that it does not happen, if I omit the rmmod.

Greetings, Michael.
