Not having heard anything about this issue, I'm wondering if there's a better forum to take this up in. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hey Everyone-

I've been playing with an ARM based linuxstamp
http://opencircuits.com/Linuxstamp, and I've been seeing kernel panics
with both 2.6.28.3, and 2.6.30 within an hour or so of turning the
linuxstamp on. The stack traces always seem to point at functions
related to networking. I've pasted a couple of the crash outputs below.
The linuxstamp isn't typically doing anything when the crashes occur, in
fact it'll crash even if I haven't logged in.

If I ifconfig the interface down, the linuxstamp stays up indefinitely.
Any pointers in one direction or another would be much appreciated.
