Sorry, I am not able to recreate this OOPS. This was actually the first
OOPS I ran into while configuring the VPN test setup. After this, I
added serial port console support into the kernel. Hence I have OOPS
reports for all subsequent OOPS, but not for this one.

If anyone else can re-create it, that would be great. Here's some

* Original test bed for OOPS was linux-2.6.0-test1. Current test bed
(no OOPS) is linux-2.6.0-test2 + Herbert's patch.

* I had misconfigured the VPN setup with tunnel mode ESP on one end and
transport mode ESP on the other end. One side was 2.4.21 + IPSec
backport, and the other side was 2.6.0-test1.
