Hi,

I have found this problem with today's git (2.6.25-00000-ge4c576b) and 2.6.25:

Network configuration:

+--------+ vlan20 +---------+ vlan80
| laptop |----------------| router |-----
+--------+ +---------+
laptop has address 192.168.243.10

Reproduce HOWTO:

1. run http://ya.bofh.cz/archive/kernel-2.6-htbcrash/init.sh
2. start packet generator on laptop (any traffic targetted to router's vlan80)
3. run http://ya.bofh.cz/archive/kernel-2.6-htbcrash/crash.sh

Then machine lockup and afterwhile print these messages:
