Unfortunately both of these are not high quality PR submissions, which
is probably why no action has been taken yet. At least in the first one
you give a "how to repeat" that I was able to follow, but in general
when you encounter a panic you should be providing the backtrace and/or
other debugging information requested here:
The second PR is basically null as written since it cannot be reproduced
and no debugging information was submitted. If you are interested in
proceeding with it, please reproduce and obtain the necessary kernel
debugging. Otherwise we should close it.
Does the patch I sent you solve the first problem?
