Just so folks will know, I uncovered and fixed an NDIS-related LOR last night/this morning.
Check out PR 72795 for the details and fix. Turns out ndis_start() was failing to release
the NDIS lock on one path through the code...
It might explain a number of crashes I saw before I switched wireless cards. After, of
course, the system became unusably unstable due the the crashes, it wouldn't run for more
than an hour and sometimes only a few minutes before stumbling over the dangling lock.
(I also have to say that being able to use the firewire port as the console really made
a huge difference; this laptop doesn't have a serial port other than the internal Winmodem.)
