This is a well known issue and has been spotted before. (It was also
triggered by the slab poisoning in the 2.2.x testing.)

It's long been fixed; please check

There has now been a long period with only successful tests by testers for
this driver, so I did finally decide for a release and bumped 2.0d28 to 2.0e.

I'll submit two patches to integrate 2.0e in the 2.2.x and the 2.3.99-px
kernels later today.
