The following was experienced while running Andrew's 2.5.64-mm1 kernel. My
dialup (ppp) connection was terminated, and when I attempted to re-establish,
pppd would not come up. I found the following oops in dmesg and have provided
a decoded version below.

This doesn't appear to be fixed in mainline, yet. Is it mm specific? dcache?

ksymoops 2.4.8 on i686 2.5.64-mm1. Options used
-V (default)
-k /proc/ksyms (default)
-l /proc/modules (default)
-o /lib/modules/2.5.64-mm1/ (default)
-m /boot/System.map-2.5.64-mm1 (default)

Warning: You did not tell me where to find symbol information. I will
assume that the log matches the kernel and modules that are running
right now and I'll use the default options above for symbol resolution.
If the current kernel and/or modules do not match the log, you can get
more accurate output by telling me the kernel version and where to find
map, modules, ksyms etc. ksymoops -h explains the options.

Error (regular_file): read_ksyms stat /proc/ksyms failed
ksymoops: No such file or directory
No modules in ksyms, skipping objects
No ksyms, skipping lsmod
