I'm pretty sure mine is hitting a panic during boot, so where the boot
messages stop might be useful in this case even if it doesn't drop to
the debugger.

I'm less of an optimist I guess :) People say wpa_supplicant works for
them, and mine crashes every time. The callstack doesn't look sane to
me, but maybe I'll ask about it elsewhere. I'm still not positive that
my machine is good.

I have ftp'd and scp'd multiple gigabytes of files with no problems.
It's only rsync that is giving me a problem so far.

As long as you're using a kernel from June 11 or earlier, heh. I
suppose it might be time to look at CVS to see what changed. I'm not
really good enough with the code to do that, but I'll give it a try
with cvsweb.
