Subject: Re: 2.6.24-rc5-mm1: cat /proc/net/packet -> oops

Hello,

	As one of usual tests I run the following script:

for i in `find /proc -type f`; do
        echo -n "cat $i > /dev/null ... ";
        cat $i > /dev/null;
        echo "done";
done

This time the culprit is /proc/net/packet. cat process gets killed 

$ cat /proc/net/packet 
Segmentation fault

and lost in lots of messages from the script but for some reason there is no
info in syslog (why?). I could capture the oops only when issued sysrq-7
or grater. That's why I didn't catch the oops earlier.

I found it because the bug makes my sparc64 box need a hardware reset most of the
time it happens and produces oops 2 screens long. x86 kills the cat process but
system is still usable and running fine. Bisection points to:

git-ubi.patch
GOOD
#
git-net.patch 
BAD
ipsec-fix-reversed-icmp6-policy-check.patch

but this seems to be far from precise :)

$ grep ^commit git-net.patch | wc -l
361

Not sure if this is important but when bisecting the mm tree the oops got shorter
at some point so maybe some other patch is also involved. This one is from x86:
