    The problem is, that I cannot obtain proper backtrace in gdb, so I cannot
    get to the tcp_output frame. I've found the above locations with addr2line
    and a pocket calculator. Take a look at the gdb session:

# kgdb kernel.debug vmcore.0
[GDB will not be able to debug user-mode threads: /usr/lib/ Undefined symbol "ps_pglobal_lookup"]

    pjd@ told me to try and disable SACK. The machine worked fine without SACK
    enabled for 30 minutes then 2 minutes after I've re-enabled SACK it crashed
    again with the same panic message.

    All patches are most welcome.

Thanks, /S
