	See for a description & backtrace.
	I guess I forgot to mention in that mail the bug manifests on
	high server load.  Also, I did a memtest86 and all memory seems to
	be fine.
	I have not found a consistent way to crash the system, except just
	letting it run for days (sometimes weeks) and stressing it at times
	with heavy network traffic.  (the traffic in this case is some
	bittorrent dowloads)  I'd be happy to supply coredump/kernel file.
