I have an embedded application, running a stock kernel 2.6.9, on an 8240 
receiving UDP. Occasionaly after a (re)boot the system will oops after 
opening (socket/bind) its first connection just as the traffic comes in.

It always occurs after the call to netif_receive_skb has competed.

Oops: kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
