Hi Emin,
Sorry for being impatient. Actually, waiting is no problem for me. I
simply didn't know how much this bug is reproducible, and was a bit
mislead by your forecast of one day result (and terrified btw seeing
words Monday and immediately side by side ;-) So, a few days or weeks,
no problem, it's all up to you.

On the other hand, it looks like there might be something else/more,
so I'd suggest to add this last skb_over_panic to bugzilla too.
