Odd.. That is skb_put() running over skbuff data area (i.e., too small buffer was allocated). Getting the "skput:over: ...." line from this would be useful. I remember fixing such case once before, but I do not remember whether the broken version was in CVS repository or just my work directory. Anyway, I haven't seen this with the latest driver version.

Fixed. This has happened before (i.e., new directory getting unsuitable owner), but my memory is limited ;-). I think changing the lock directory would really be useful..
