I'll try that, but the bug is very hard to reproduce reliably w.r.t
different kernel configs.  E.g. I can reliably reproduce it with this
kernel with gmake config.status.  If I e.g. drop few options (INET6,
some others) from the kernel, the bug is no longer reproducible.
Ktracing or running under gdb make it go away too.  So if flushing the
i-cache makes it go away, it doesn't prove much.
