Kernel: assertion

Date: Mon Feb 03 2003 - 20:51:13 EST


  I am writing an ethernet driver for a Arm 9 based processor with a
built-in Mac controller.
I am using 2.5.30 kernel. When I run my driver, I will sometimes see the
following Kernel assertion message after
excuting the receive interrrupt handler:

      KERNEL: assertion (!dev->ip6_ptr) failed at dev.c (2518)
      KERNEL: assetion (!dev->dn_ptr) failed at dev.c (2519)

What does this mean? I am new to writing device drivers and any
pointers/explanation you have about this would be of help.
