    http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=36588

    I am using a custom 2.6.26 kernel using the debian kernel source. The only
    things I have changed from the amd64 configuration is processor optimization
    for core 2 duo, low-latency preemptible kernel and 1000 Hz frequency timer. I
    am attaching output of lspci and lsmod.

    This bug is crucial for people with thinkpads. I can't work without wireless
    internet, but I need to know that my computer won't randomly crash.

    your box is tainted, try to reproduce without.

    I just crashed with an untainted, unmodified 2.6.26-1-amd64 (2.6.26-5) kernel.
    The only difference was that caps lock didn't blink -- the wireless icon did
    instead. The computer couldn't be reached in any way. No input devices
    responded and when I tried to ssh and ping from another computer, my T61p was
    unreachable. The crash happened while sending a few mails with large
    attachments.

    Doing a simple google search for "T61p crash caps lock" shows that this seems
    to be a pretty widespread problem that's been around for some time. For me, it
    makes my computer pretty much useless, as I can't afford to have random crashes
    while working.

    Could I maybe solve this by buying some other (insertable) wireless network
    card that uses other kernel modules?
