Well, not sure, but I think it is worth trying.
I just thought I would let you know that I applied the patch to the 2.6.10
kernel and recompiled. It seems to have made the Oops go away. At least, I
can't make the Oops happen any more by unplugging the Ethernet cables during
operation and then shutting down.
I might add that when I tried to apply the patch with:
patch --dry-run -p1 -d dir < patchfile
I got all kinds of errors about this line or that line. I can't remember
what they were. In the end, I VERY CAREFULLY cut and pasted your patch, and
removed the lines the patch was supposed to remove.
Did you attempt to apply the patch? Anyway, looks good.
