Date: Fri, 26 Jan 2007 15:50:25 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <45BA2341.40008@inov.pt> (raw)

Hi,

I'm having a problem with the latest 2.6.16 kernel (I've found the
problem on 2.6.16.37 and 2.6.16.38). I have a application that retreives
data from a GPS connected on a serial port. From time to time a get a
kernel Oops, like this:
