I’m trying to load the ethernet bridge module into my kernel, but am getting a kernel panic shortly after loading the module with modprobe. Wanted to see if this rings a bell with anyone else, maybe I missed something.
I followed the very helpful kernel compilation procedures in the docs and elsewhere in this forum. I have compiled and loaded other modules successfully with the linaro 5.2 toolchain.
For bridging I compiled and loaded bridge.ko, stp.ko and llc.ko as described here. “modprobe bridge” loads stp and llc as dependencies.
All seems fine at first, but 5-10 seconds after loading the module, a kernel panic occurs that hangs the system. I think it’s trigged by the very next network activity that occurs after the module load.
“Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address xxxxxx” … followed by memory dumps
Narrowed it down to the “llc” module - if I load just llc by itself, the panic occurs.
