SAK kills 2.1.3[78]

In my keymap control keycode 99 is mapped to SAK. This used to work
flawlessly, but since 2.1.37 it kills the system cold. Nothing left in
the logs. All I get is:

unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address

Oops: 0000
CPU: 0
EIP: 0010:[<c017070c>]

process swapper (pid:0, process nr:0, stackpage: co10700)

The call trace has some 16 entires, but the first is c0106000 which is
init_task_union according to and the last is c010019b which
is L6.

I hope this is of some help.
