Hi, all,

I am coding a linux kernel module, but when I run my testing code I got
a kernel panic. And the panic screen said:

general protection fault:0000
CPU: 0
EIP: 0010:[<d289a213>] Tainted: P
EFLAGS: 00010297
Code: 8b 02 8b 55 08 89 02 8b 55 0c 8b 42 04 8b 55 08 89 42 04 8b
<0> Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
In interrupt handler - not syncing


I am a newbie to linux kernel hacking. I dont know how to find out
where is the fault code. :( Could anyone give me some hints???

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Wang Hui.
