Can you subscribe to the smartphones-kernel mailing list and reply to
Christian's mail confirming the same problem, please?  Or, is anyone
other aware it this bug has already been reported upstream
(i.e. Openmoko)?

Ah, yes, I forgot about that because with the Debian kernel package you
do not need it.

This is good since it means that the Debian kernel package is not to be
blamed ;-)

Without kidding, agricola.d.o is already building a new kernel package
with the ar6000 driver as module: it would be nice if Christian and you
could test it to be sure the oops is not present without it.  I will
contact you in private once the kernel package is ready.

FWIW, this is anyway the way to go: if the ar6000 driver compiled as
module works at the same level as the in-kernel version, then I will
upload a new package with this change.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
