But why does it work with 2.1.62 and lower kernels then? I have a
lot of things segfaulting with nasty "cannot dereference kernel NULL
pointer" or similar KERNEL debugging messages, this leads me to believe
its a kernel problem, specially if others are getting similar problems and
they have. Some have reported the umount segfaulting with kernel debugging
msgs and others have said when they exit squake they get the same.
