Oh. Okay. Kernel stack is crashing, so. No big surprise, in fact.

One hint: remove any kernelland OBOS net stack modules from your ~/
config/add-ons/kernel/network/* folder and, even better, you can 
remove the net_stack_driver too.

Until we have a enough crash-prone stack again, it make no sense to be 
KDL crashing when we have an userland debugging platform to debug our 
I hope to go hunting on our stack internal this week-end, but who 
So, everyone currious is welcome to help debug our stack:


- Expand somewhere
- Run Install script
- From a Terminal :
  $ export NET_STACK_DRIVER_PATH=/dev/net/server
  $ ifconfig -a
  $ ifconfig loop0 up netmask
  $ ping

For more real (thru wire) tests, you should allow one ethernet driver 
to be used by the OBOS stack, aka disable it in BONE/net_server.
Oh, remember, bdb is your friend....

Have fun, guys :-p
