This could probably be the problem. I am using that patch too, and have had
an occasional panic too lately (since about a week). It's certainly a
bit of an ugly hack (it patches the config program, though I must say
that the line it changes was already very yucky), but it does allow me
to feed my 14k4 modem at 57600 bps. Before, I got tons of silo overflows
at anything >= 9600 bps.

Anyway, I think that work is being done to improve the serial driver
the 'right' way, so hopefully I won't be needing this patch in the
