Subject: Re: circular locking, mirred,

Ok, i will proceed and will try all required options after few hours (need to 
go another city, work).
I will try to set max as possible debug options.

On bug_feb.txt it is triggering ONLY lockdep warning, but full network lockup 
occur very rarely. But even it happens with me 2 times, i am not sure it is 
same problem. Let's stick maybe to this one (lockdep warning) which is easy 
to reproduce.
I will open also bugzilla report.

Regarding testing with compiled in modules, i did

It is still triggering lockdep.
Here is full dmesg:
