Ooops. A kernel oops.
It's a 2.6.x series kernel, isn't it?
I had some problems of my own with this line of kernels, so I'd advice
to stay with the 2.4.x line.
I also had oopses when heavily manipulating iptables/packet scheduling
queues. Unfortunately, It was a production machine and I didn't have
time to debug. Just switched to latest 2.4.x and the router runs well
and has several weeks of uptime with no problems.
