kernel panic in init, kernel_thread, with netfilter ipv6

I tested kernels test7pre5 and test7, and both fail to boot on an
UP pentium 100 box (i never saw a panic before on that box), they panic
in init, kernel_thread. (i think)

that is , on my configuration, right after netfilter ipv6
initialisation. So after the netfilter ipv6 message, i see something
like this:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address

printing eip:
*pde = 000000
Oops : 0000
EFLAGS = 10286
eax = 00000000
ebx = ....

panic : trying to kill init.

but the call trace looked like this :
and when i grep for those in, they give me kernel_thread and

compiling ipv6 as a module and inserting it afterwards gives me no

i will attach my .config, and i can also provide a binary image, a , everything you would like (i can reproduce the crash
whenever i want to, altough i verry rarely want to produce a crash ...).

if you have feedback, please cc to

greetings, thanks,
